Grants and Foundations Librarian

About

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.

 

 

Background

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).

Responsibilities

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.
