I have been the Systems Administrator for Milne library at SUNY Geneseo for the past eleven years while also working as the lead programmer and major proponent of the Information Delivery Services (IDS) Project.

The IDS Project is a New York State library cooperative consisting of over seventy libraries including public and private academic libraries, the New York Public Library, and the New York State Library.  These libraries have joined together to improve resource sharing across the state and are committed to providing improvements to the entire resource sharing community through the ongoing development of innovative tools and promotion of best practices.  Over the past eight years of working with the IDS Project, I have had the opportunity to create several new solutions, such as the Article License Information Availability Service (ALIAS) and the Transaction Performance Analysis Module (TPAM), as well as over twenty addons for the ILLiad client (Addon Directory).

Most recently I have been working on the Getting It System Toolkit (http://www.gistlibrary.org/ ).  GIST for ILLiad is a collection of tools for use within ILLiad which allow for enhanced ILL and Acquisitions.  Also, I have been working on the GIST Gift and Deselection Manager which was released two years ago and provides libraries with a streamlined way of processing donations and gathering information on items that are being considered for weeding.

I am looking forward to the discussions we will be having over the next few months.

    Great to have you in the Studio, Mark! I’m impressed by the range of your development experience, as well as your work in support of cross-institutional collaboration.
