Operations Manager - Onsite User Services


I am the Library Operations Manager for Onsite User Services. My managerial focus is primarily on Hatcher-Shapiro Libraries.


I have worked for the University Library in various roles since 2001. I studied Sociology at U of M, with specializations in social inequality and social welfare.


I oversee all the services of the Shapiro Circulation operation during the day and afternoon. I also oversee University Reserves, which includes both student and faculty services, as well as behind-the-scenes processing of materials. The University Reserves print collection is now located in the Askwith Media Library! Please check Library Hours for our extended Askwith Media Library hours. If you are an instructor interested in placing a University Reserves Course Reserves request, or if you are a subject liaison placing a request on behalf of a faculty member, please contact

I also sit on the Shapiro Lobby Team, which is responsible for events and digital displays in the Shapiro Library Lobby (Bert's Study Lounge). These responsibilities include scheduling digital content. We are happy to display both student org promotion and event slides, as well as digital exhibits and student group "screen takeovers" (on a week-long basis). Please contact if you are interested in displaying content on the screens in the Shapiro Lobby.

I also coordinate our popular student organization information tabling service in the Shapiro Lobby.

Lastly, I serve as an Operations contact for our "Library Partners at Shapiro," which include ITS / Knox Center Adaptive Technology Computing Site, University Unions' Bert's Cafe, and Innovate Blue.
