Two of Dennis’ current projects involve working with the interlibrary loan community to design and build a tool that will act as a virtual real-time ILL cost study, and to identify ways to use data to measure and demonstrate the value of sharing library collections. Previously he led efforts to promote the streamlined, sensible sharing of special collections materials between libraries and to reduce the carbon footprint of interlibrary loan operations.
Dennis began his career as a library resource sharing professional a quarter century ago, serving as the head of interlibrary loan at New York University’s Bobst Library prior to joining OCLC.
Dennis holds an MLIS from Queens College, City University of New York, and a Master of Arts degree in Creative Writing from Emerson College.
