Anne Prestamo is Dean of Libraries at Florida International University in Miami, FL. She previously served Associate Dean of Libraries for Collection and Technology Services and the Claud D. Kniffin Professor of Library Service and Education at Oklahoma State University. A significant portion of her responsibilities focused on evaluation and implementation of electronic resources, and analysis and negotiation of licensing agreements. She has earned the respect of many library vendors as she works diligently to implement advanced technological features offered in their products. This is evidenced by invitations to serve on numerous vendor advisory boards and resulted in OSU serving as a development partner for several new products and services.
