Molly Keener joined the faculty of Z. Smith Reynolds Library, Wake Forest University, in October 2009. As the Scholarly Communication Librarian, she advances a campus-wide scholarly communication education campaign supporting faculty research and publishing endeavors. She supports faculty seeking to: manage their copyright and intellectual property rights; explore alternative publishing options, including open access publishing and archiving; comply with funder mandate requirements; and create permanent electronic collections of their scholarship. Ms. Keener also educates graduate students on the importance of managing copyrights when publishing, and supports them in submitting electronic copies of their theses and dissertations. She is the library liaison to the Health and Exercise Science and Mathematics departments, and is an instructor for the Library's undergraduate information literacy course. Prior to joining the faculty at ZSR, Ms. Keener was a reference librarian at WFU School of Medicine's Coy C. Carpenter Library. She earned her BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and her MLIS from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
