I have been interested in information ever since I was a little girl and would pore over reference books I found at the library and those we had at home. As a graduate student, I spent many hours in academic libraries and archives, marveling at and using the array of print and electronic resources they offer, as I pursued concentrations in history of the book, academic librarianship, and digital libraries.
Today I am an academic librarian, excited about working with this vast bibliographic world --this incredible body of knowledge based on centuries of inquiry and documentation-- and making this world accessible to the next generation of patrons.
On these pages you can read about my experience with print collection management, reference instruction and information literacy research, and digital libraries. I have also extensively studied art librarianship and the particular role that print and emerging electronic resources play in art history research.
I have a previous Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and extensive experience teaching academic English to adult learners at universities in the United States and abroad.
