I hold a PhD in Science of Books and Documents from the University of Rome Sapienza, a Master's degree in Library and information science from the University of Venice Ca' Foscari, and a second Master's degree in English and French literature from the University of Turin.

I obtained the “Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale” (National Scientific Qualification) for the role of associate professor in Science of books and documents (11/A4 Scienze del libro e del documento) in April 2021.

My research interests focus on scholarly communication, digital scholarship, library collection development, digital culture in libraries, as well as sustainable development.

I am the author of over 130 publications in books, conference proceedings and international journals that you can find listed in my ORCID profile or institutional repository also linked below. Among my works, the most recently published book is Le raccolte bibliotecarie digitali nella società dei dati (Editrice Bibliografica, 2020), about library digital collections in data society.

I have been teaching in many academic seminars and professional courses. I am a member of the scientific committe of the journal Biblioteche oggi Trends and the editorial board of the journals Biblioteche oggi and Against the Grain.

I am an active member of the Italian Library Association (AIB) and a member of AIB Observatory on libraries and sustainable development (2020-2023). I have international offices in EBLIDA Expert Group European Libraries and Sustainable Development Implementation and Assessment (ELSIA) and IFLA Environment, Sustainability and Libraries Section (ENSULIB).

Beside my scientific research interests in library and information science, for a long time I have been exploring the field of "literary librarianship". I run a culumn in the journal "Biblioteche oggi" and I published the book La biblioteca narrata (Editrice Bibliografica, 2020) about the image and perception of libraries and librarians in literature and cinema.

I currently work as a research support librarian at Politecnico di Torino, Programming Development Quality and Life Area, and I am in charge of supporting data collection and analysis and the use of the Current Research Information System IRIS as related to needs and procedures for research assessment.

Since 2002 to 2014, I have worked at the University of Venice Ca' Foscari, where I began my job as a librarian at the Classical Studies Library of the Department of Sciences of Ancient and Near East Civilisations. In 2003, I started working in Digital library services and I was formally designated by the Director of Library Services as the representative for Ca' Foscari University in the Management and Technical Board of Consortium CIPE, a consortium of universities for the acquisition of digital resources and negotiation with publishers. I later became Head of digital resources acquisition and management services of the university.

Since 1997 to 2002, I have worked as an assistant librarian at Politecnico di Torino, at the Central Library of Architecture, with duties of cataloguing, reference and information literacy, mainly for digital resources, and service at library desk.
