Anne Marie Casey is currently the Hunt Library Director at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). Prior to this she worked at the libraries of Central Michigan University, National University in San Diego, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and the Springfield (MA) City Library. She received a Ph.D. in Managerial Leadership in the Information Professions from Simmons University and an AMLS from the University of Michigan.
Anne’s dissertation research focused on strategic priorities. She has led successful strategic planning at ERAU and was actively engaged in the development of the last two NEFLIN strategic plans. Anne has a strong interest in assisting other libraries in their strategic planning and organizational development efforts either informally as a colleague or formally as a paid consultant. Anne has a passion for open access and leads the institutional repository team at ERAU (commons.erau.edu). She also has considerable expertise in the provision of library services to distance learners.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Central Florida and Master of Science in Library and Information Studies from the Florida State University.
I am the Electronic Services Librarian for Hunt Library at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida. My responsibilities include developing and maintaining the library website and intranet, coordinating access to online resources, administering online library services, managing social media, and general technology support.
My library areas of interest are website development, library intranets, electronic resource access, online library services, institutional repositories, and emerging technologies. I write about these topics on my Library Technology Launchpad website.
I am the Director of Library Services at the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences, where I have worked for 10 years. I have my master’s degree in library and information science from the University of South Carolina, and an education doctorate in higher education leadership from Walden University. Previously, I served on the NEFLIN Board of Directors. My experiences in my job, as well as on the NEFLIN board, have helped me hone my skills in strategic planning, budgeting, and outcomes assessment. I also have experience working with various types of academic libraries, myself being the long-time director of the library at a for-profit, health sciences university. My research has focused on academic leadership topics including organizational learning, employee engagement, and innovation.
Howdy! I started volunteering in libraries when I was twelve and have never left, and have worked/volunteered in public, academic, school, or law libraries. I have been at Flagler College since graduating with my MA in Library Science from USF in 2007, and in 2012 I founded Special Collections at Flagler College. Other duties include serving as one of the internship supervisors, creating displays, reference, instruction, preservation and disaster preparation, and being one half of the team for Meet the Collections and Curators (a twice a semester event introducing students, staff, and faculty to the items housed in the Archives or Special Collections). Special Collections has one student worker whom I supervise.
I have many interests outside of work including taking part in living history demonstrations when the opportunity arises.

When not in the library, you will find her either running or writing.
