Meet Andrea Wirth, Digital Scholarship Librarian

By BTL on November 16, 2015 9:29 AM | Permalink

We are pleased to welcome (back) Andrea Wirth to the UNLV University Libraries as our digital scholarship librarian. Andrea is excited to be at the forefront of scholarly communication, open access publishing, author’s rights issues, and partnering with faculty to place their research in UNLV’s institutional repository, Digital Scholarship@UNLV.

Andrea joined the University Libraries from Oregon State University (OSU), where she worked for over eight years as a subject liaison librarian for the sciences. Andrea also oversaw the depositing of articles in OSU’s institutional repository and consulted with faculty about copyright management.

Andrea was attracted to the digital scholarship librarian position because of her passion to connect faculty and students with the myriad benefits of open access and digital scholarship. “I worked at UNLV from 2001 to 2004, and when I saw this position announcement I knew it was time to consider coming back. When I looked into recent UNLV news, I learned about the top tier initiative and the campus-wide focus on faculty research. I knew then I wanted to be a part of these efforts. I’m also very excited about the work UNLV is doing with undergraduate research,” Andrea shared.

Andrea wants faculty to take advantage of Digital Scholarship@UNLV, noting “I’m looking forward to sharing the benefits of the institutional repository with faculty and researchers. Digital Scholarship@UNLV is a resource to complement faculty research publications—as articles are published in a journal, many journals will allow authors to post a version of an article in Digital Scholarship@UNLV making it available for the world to discover.”
