Role in the Library

Gayle's work focuses on providing access to resources through the selection and maintenance of the Library's digital and physical collections.  Nothing is off limits for consideration, but the collection primarily includes books, journals, models (mostly anatomical), video, and audio materials in her areas of communication, computing, engineering including aeronautics and transportation, human performance & sport/dance, mathematics, medicine (complementary & lifestyle), nursing, the sciences (biology, chemistry, earth & space sciences, and physics), technology, and visual arts. Faculty in these areas are encouraged to contact Gayle with collection, research resources, or related needs.

As a member of Researcher Support Services Gayle is also works in citation management,  scholarly communication, and open access publishing.  She teaches workshops on several topics and encourages researchers to preserve their work (including data and publications) in secure long term archives such as the Auraria Digital Repository.
