I have been a librarian at the University of Michigan since August of 1985. I have worked in a number of areas over the years and feel privileged to be affiliated with this institution.
My education includes master's degrees in Library Science (UM, 1985) and Sociology (UM, 1983) with a special interest in social psychology. My undergraduate degree was in East Asian Studies (Princeton, 1979).
I serve as the Library’s subject specialist in the area of grant-seeking and philanthropy at the University of Michigan. I am responsible for collection development in the areas of grant-seeking, proposal writing, and philanthropy, and provide research consultation to faculty, students and the local non-profit community. I can also offer both general and course-integrated instruction and workshops designed to foster the effective use of external funding resources and the effective application of new technologies in teaching and scholarship in the social sciences. I am the U-M supervisor for the Foundation Center's Funding Information Network.
