Tina Baich, MLS, MA


I am the Senior Associate Dean for Scholarly Communication & Content Strategies at IUPUI University Library. In this role, I supervise the Center for Digital Scholarship as well as 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.

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
