John Brogan is working to find, and blur, the border between art and science. A senior at Case Western Reserve University, Brogan has already become a seasoned traveler, authored two books and partnered with the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for a research project. Brogan is studying cognitive science, which he describes as a blend of psychology and philosophy, taken within the lens of a hard science.
OhioLINK is excited to welcome Judith Cobb to our team as the Digital Curation Coordinator.

In her new position, Cobb will manage OhioLINK’s implementation of the Ex Libris Rosetta digital preservation platform and develop related policies and procedures.
Christine Raber, Ph.D., can truly say her use of OhioLINK resources has real-life application. A professor of Shawnee State University’s Master of Occupational Therapy program, Raber specializes in the rehabilitation of dementia patients. More specifically, she researches strategies and opportunities that can motivate persons with dementia to use their abilities to stay connected and engaged in life. She has presented her research at international forums in the UK, Sweden, and Japan. Raber also supervises service-learning experiences in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Undeniably, researchers can appreciate OhioLINK’s vast stockpile of literature from around the world, but perhaps none so much as Xavier University’s Suparna Chatterjee, an assistant professor who seeks to understand the unequal geographies of globalization. Her work culminates information from economics, history, business and anthropology, to name a few, to study how ideas spread and impact the lives of people across the globe.
“I like to see how concepts and ideas travel, what is added and lost in its translation across social and spatial divides,” Chatterjee said.

Amy Pawlowski is OhioLINK’s deputy director and eResources licensing coordinator, though she claims she likes to think of herself as OhioLINK’s .exe file. Amy holds two degrees in music performance, which are a unique contrast to her master’s degree in library information science from Kent State University.
Erin Kilkenny, OhioLINK’s cataloging assistant, earned her undergraduate degree in art history & visual culture from Denison University and is currently working on a Master of Library and Information Science from Kent State University.

Lynn Ulatowski, a PhD graduate of Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), recently transitioned from her Post-doctoral fellowship with CWRU to continue her research as an assistant professor at Ursuline College. Her Dissertation topic: Regulation of Vitamin E and Tocopherol Transfer protein received the Academic Excellence Award. Ulatowski has dedicated her career to studying how vitamin E moves throughout the human body, particularly in the brain. Her research could aid patients who are already diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s, ALS and Down’s syndrome.
