Haley is the Librarian for Education and Open Scholarship. She works with the Program in Education here at Duke, from undergraduate minors to master’s students on their research projects. She also focuses on making research more widely available, hence “open scholarship.” She promotes open access on campus and supports faculty and students in their publishing endeavors. There are various publishing tools at Duke, which she helps to administer. She loves seeing students establish themselves as undergraduate scholars, members of the Duke research community.

Haley came from snowy Buffalo, New York to attend library school at UNC (boo, I know) before coming to Duke. She worked more exclusively with open access outreach before working with the Program in Education. She’s glad to interact more closely with undergraduate students now as they enter the university world. She holds a BA in history from the University at Buffalo and is still passionate about all things historical. In her free time, she enjoys walking on the Al Buehler trail on campus, reading, building computers and playing video games, movies, and travel.
