As the Metadata Librarian, my focus is to provide a seamless flow from discovery of information to delivery of content in any format, to establish metadata policies and procedures for various cataloguing and digital projects, while providing expertise on data creation, curation, preservation, maintenance, and enrichment of metadata for digital and physical collections.

Marina is active professionally in the following state and national committees:
As online access to library resources has become the norm, browsing habits have changed. In order to respond to users’ needs, I designed and developed Find@Roux, a custom web application that will provide a unique library service by assisting users navigate the stacks. When using this app, students, faculty, and staff will spend less time navigating the physical stacks searching for specific items. In the first implementation phase, users will browse a digital map to identify subject areas and physical spaces on each floor, and in the second implementation phase, users will identify the location of each physical library item.
Marina is actively involved in scholarly research and contributed to the library profession through presentations, peer reviewed posters, and papers at various national and international conferences.
