Hatcher Graduate Library
I am User Services Librarian in the Learning & Teaching division of the University Libraries.
I have a B.A. degree from the University of Michigan-Flint in Political Science and English and an A.M.L.S degree from the University of Michigan in Library Science. Prior to my present position, I held positions as Reference/Instruction Librarian at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, and as Coordinator of Information Technology at UM's Shapiro Undergraduate Library.
I provide reference service at both the Undergraduate and Graduate Library reference desks and virtual reference through the UM Ask A Librarian service. I plan, prepare, and provide instruction in one-on-one, small group, and large class environments; I author online instructional materials (e.g. LibGuides, instruction wiki, etc), and explore new methods of online instruction. I participate in projects that directly support the goals and activities of the learning and teaching area such as wiki editing, web editing, and provide staff training/documentation, and serve on library committees and teams as assigned.
