I am interested in Digital Libraries, particularly I focus on pedagogical strategies to make them accessible through my teaching in the classroom. “Perseus” and The “Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes” (BVMC) are among those I use a lot, although because of my area of expertise it is BVMC the one I use the most. BVMC is one of the largest digital libraries in the Spanish speaking world and it is free. It provides access to texts in a variety of areas (science, arts, humanities, newspapers, etc) and time (medieval, early modern, modern, contemporary, etc.).

Fields of interest: Libraries/Digital Archives, Electronic Literature, Computational Art, Collaborative Technologies
