Philip's role in the library

As the AUL for Technical and Access Services, I am ultimately responsible for the University's collections, from their purchase to cataloging, their access to preservation.  As the Stanford University Library pushes into the realm of linked data both for discovery and internal data structure, I champion the transformation within the university and with outside partners.
