Tina Baich, MLS, MA


I am the Associate Dean for Collections at IUPUI University Library. In this role, I supervise all cataloging and metadata creation, resource sharing services, library shipping, acquisitions, and special collections and archives. My primary professional focus is resource sharing in which I have more than ten years of professional experience. As Associate Dean for Collections, I advise the Metadata Librarian on metadata management and policy for all University Library digital collections.

My interest in web-based interlibrary loan (ILL) finding aids has grown into research on the impact of open access on ILL, but I still maintain a list of web-based finding aids at https://pinboard.in/u:illfindingaids.
I graduated from the Indiana University Schools of Library & Information Science and Liberal Arts with master degrees in Library Science and Public History.

Areas of expertise: interlibrary loan, resource sharing, open access, metadata

Research interests: open access and interlibrary loan, shared print, collection management
