I am a data acquisitions librarian, focusing on financial, banking, consumer, credit, and other related topics. I work with economists, researchers, and supervisory staff at the Fed to locate and acquire data from vendors, associations, and government agencies that aids in the Fed's policy work as well as in research. In addition to my work in acquisitions, I work on taxonomy of research done at the Board. I also review data used in research at the Fed to ensure that usage is in line with license terms.
