Welcome to my professional portfolio.

There is more information out there than ever before, which means that we need good librarians more than ever before.  If your academic library or other information organization is seeking an information professional with fresh ideas about providing access to knowledge, read on. Connecting people with information is what I do.

Today’s library users know how to use Google. They might know how to find books and journal articles, too. But learning how to sort through all the information and find the answers to specific questions can be a dicey undertaking. All users — from first-year students to tenured professors — need allies in the research process. That’s where I come in. Some of my skills include:

  • leading one-on-one or group instruction sessions
  • creating guides to help users navigate through available resources
  • conducting in-depth research consultations
  • creating digital collections
  • working with developers to design better tools for information retrieval

On this website, you’ll find specific examples of the services I can provide for your users in four areas: reference & user services, teaching, digital collections, and knowledge organization. You can also read more about me, view some examples of my research and writing, or review my resumé.
