Economics Librarian and Coordinator, Shapiro Library Reference Services


In my role as Coordinator, Shapiro Library Reference Services, I manage the reference services  of the Shapiro Library.   I also serve as the Collection Coordinator for the Shaprio Undergraduate Library.  In this role I oversee the collections (print and electronic) and collection budget for the Undergraduate Library.  I am part of the Library's User Information and Discovery Services Department.

As Economics Librarian,  I purchase materials for the Graduate Library in support of the research and instructional programs of the the Economics Department and provide reference and research consultations to economics faculty and students.

I also serve as the subject liaison to the Interdisciplinary Program in Organizational Studies.

I work at the reference desk at both the Shapiro and Hatcher Libraries, answer questions on Ask a Librarian, and as a UGL selector acquire books for the UGL on business, careers, economics, labor,  psychology, organizational studies, communications, anthropology,  sociology, education, performing arts, sociology, political science, law, information studies, and medicine.

I can be reached at my office in the Shapiro Library or by phone or email.


I have a B. A. in Business Administration and a Master of Librarianship (M. Libr.) both from the University of Washington.

Prior to becoming Economics Librarian and Coordinator, Shapiro Library Reference Services, I served as the head of University Reserves from 2000-2009 and as the Director of the Michigan Information Transfer Source from 1991-2000, both with the Univeristy Library.  I was an adjunct instructor at the School of Information from 1993-1999 teaching two courses (Searching Online Databases and Starting and Operating an Information Brokerage).   Before joining the University Library in 1991, I worked for seven years as a corporate librarian with AT&T and Crum & Forster Commercial Insurance Company.
