Senior Programs Officer, OCLC Research Library Partnership
Dennis coordinates the SHARES resource sharing consortium for the OCLC Research Library Partnership. He also manages OCLC Research projects centered on sharing collections.
He worked with the interlibrary loan community to design and build the OCLC Interlibrary Loan Cost Calculator, a tool that acts as a virtual real-time ILL cost study. Previously, Dennis led efforts to promote the streamlined, sensible sharing of special collections materials between libraries and to reduce the carbon footprint of interlibrary loan operations.
Before coming to OCLC in 1997, Dennis served as Head of Interlibrary Loan at New York University’s Bobst Library.
