There are many chasms in the library profession: among different libraries and between public services and technology staff, users and librarians, and research and practice. Susan Gibbons bridges all of them. As director of digital library initiatives at the University of Rochester River Campus Libraries, Gibbons was an early adopter of MIT's DSpace technology and worked with the provost to develop the university's institutional repository. Through her efforts, the university became one of the eight restitutions in the original DSpace Federation. This article summarizes the accomplishments of Susan Gibbons from the University of Rochester in New York.
