We will focus on the use of EPrints as a development platform supporting the academic open access model, in particular the potential for the software to support artists’ self-archiving and web dissemination of secondary literature pertaining to media arts (such as articles and exhibition catalogue essays).

She holds a BFA from Concordia University and a Masters in Library and Information Studies from McGill University.
