Government Information, Law and Political Science Librarian


I am the subject specialist for US Government Information, Law, and Political Science. I manage the collection budgets for the Clark Library for Maps, Government Information and Data Services, on the second floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library. 


Since 2001 I have helped researchers discover and access the information they need to do research in the areas of politics, law and government. Before I started working in libraries, I was an editor at a legal publication. I hold a BA in History from Northwestern University and a MLIS degree from Dominican University.


I acquire books, journals, data sets and databases for the collection, including the new Library Data Grants program. I help people research laws and policies and help them discover and access statistics and data sets such as US census data. I provide research assistance and instruction in support of the Poltical Science Department and the Center for Political Studies. I teach workshops and course-integrated sessions on finding data for many different departments on campus. I am also an instructor for Digital Research: Critical Concepts & Strategies
