Formerly the Public Services Team Lead who joined our staff in March 2007, Dottie envisions more resources, especially journals, to become available online and supplement our already large collection (see: E-Journals).

Dottie spent the previous 13 years at NOAA Central Library in Silver Spring, Maryland, where she was the Reference Team Lead. Dottie was also in charge of NOAA's CoRIS (Coral Reef Information System) Virtual Library and co-lead on developing the Ocean Exploration Video Data Management System (VDMS), as well as being involved with the NOAA-wide Institutional Repository pilot project.Earning her Masters Degree in Library Science from the Catholic University of America and a Bachelors Degree from the Ohio State University, Dottie is skilled in many areas including: engineering and science reference at the Air Force Institute of Technology (Dayton, Ohio), legal reference at the Covington & Burling law firm (D.C.), and general reference at the Dayton & Montgomery County Public Library (Dayton, Ohio). Dottie is also a member of Atmospheric Science Librarians International (ASLI), and has experience with EndNote, ProCite and Reference Manager (details/downloads).

Outside of work, Dottie enjoys spending time with her husband, three grown children, and her four grandchildren (two of which live in Denver). Their favorite place to visit is at a beach house in Bethany Beach, Delaware. She also enjoys reading historical fiction and mysteries. Having grown up and mainly lived around the Chesapeake Bay on the East Coast, she is now looking forward to exploring the Rocky Mountains and our wild weather.
