Prior to 1998, she held numerous positions at the Brandeis University Libraries, including Music Cataloger and Assistant Creative Arts Librarian, Reference Librarian, Head of Systems and Access Services, and Head of Information Systems. Her career has encompassed some of the earliest developments in online library catalogs and systems, the development of standards for electronic resource management (including as a member and co-author of the Digital Library Federation’s Electronic Resource Management Initiative), the development of library licensing principles and standards, and support for transformation in scholarly communication.
Ivy’s professional interests and contributions center on issues related to licensing, scholarly communications, electronic resource management, and the intersection of electronic and print collection development.
