What I Do and How to Reach Me

A little bit about what I do for the University Library: I am the Coordinator of Public Services, which means I oversee the services which directly serve our patrons and help address concerns and issues in those areas. I am also, of course, a reference/instruction librarian, so I "do" reference, which means I assist people - students, faculty, staff, community, whomever - with research. I also serve as a liaison to several departments, but more on that below. 

Liaison

I also serve as a liaison to select departments on campus:

In my capacity as a liaison, I do several things: 

  • Conduct library instruction sessions
  • Help design meaningful research assignments
  • Create and maintain online subject guides
  • Receive and process purchase recommendations

Other Duties

Other things I do as a librarian: serve on campus and professional committees; conduct and publish scholarly research; participate  and present at conferences; participate and present workshops; I volunteer with various organizations (such as Destination Imagination); and special projects as they crop up, like creating displays for the Library's rotating display. I keep pretty busy, obviously! You can take a look at my CV for more detailed info here.
