Jody Bailey, Head of Scholarly Communications, Research, Engagement, and Scholarly Communications

Jody Bailey was most recently the director of publishing at UT-Arlington.

Jody Bailey is the new head of scholarly communications in the newly created research, engagement, and scholarly communications (RESC) division, led by Lisa Macklin, in Emory Libraries. Prior to her Emory arrival, Jody spent 10 years at the University of Texas at Arlington, most recently as the director of publishing. She also spent time as the director of grants and research, the head of art and humanities outreach and scholarship, and as a reference and instruction librarian. Before becoming a librarian, she worked as an editor of academic journals and books for ten years.

Born in Richmond, VA, Jody moved to Louisiana when she was 12 years old. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature from the University of Louisiana at Monroe, her master’s of information and library science at Wayne State University, and a master of arts degree in English, with a linguistics concentration, from Louisiana State University.

Jody considers herself an old-school video gamer when she’s away from work, having spent the last twelve years mastering the World of Warcraft and dabbling in other online games. She and her husband Kyle are enjoying getting to know Decatur, where they are currently living in a downtown apartment, and hope to buy a home in the spring.

“This is a broader role than the one I had previously,” said Jody about her new job. “I am looking forward to working with Jen Doty and Melanie Kowalski on data management and copyright, as well as Fran Pici on our repository services, and learning more to help expand the services we can offer.”
