I’ve spent most of my career as the librarian subject specialist for feminist studies and U.S. history, and as a collections librarian.  My long-time position as coordinator of the Humanities Collection Group (Huma), oddly enough, led me to develop the Library’s Scholarly Communication Program, which I remain the coordinator of.

Freelance book indexing is a side gig I began, when tempted to drop out of society and live in a trailer near a beach in Baja.  I look forward to ramping up Moonlight Indexing when I retire, but instead of moving to Baja, I will be splitting my time between Detroit, MI and Ventura, CA. Indexing discounts are available to the authors of OA books, and authors publishing with small independent presses.
