Hi, I’m Annie Gaines. I work as a scholarly communications librarian at the University of Idaho Library in Moscow, Idaho, where I manage the institutional repository (a hybrid of VIVO and CONTENTdm), host workshops on copyright and open textbooks, and advocate for open access.
I’ve worked in libraries since 2002, when I started shelving books in my local public library. I received my MLIS from Drexel University, and a B.A. in Art from the University of Oregon. When not in libraryland, I’m an aspiring comic author, illustrator, outdoor enthusiast, and nerd. I’d also really like to build a small cabin in the wilderness one day.
