Communication and Information Studies Librarian


As the Communication Studies Librarian and the Information Studies Librarian, I purchase materials and provide reference and instruction services in support of the research and instructional programs of the Communication Studies Department and the School of Information. I also select materials related to newspapers and general periodicals. Please feel free to contact me with a question, set up an appointment for a research consultation, or have me speak to your class about library research.


I have a master's degree from the UM School of Information, and a bachelor's degree in English Literature, along with Policy Studies, from Rice University in Houston, TX.


You can also find me answering reference questions via the Ask A Librarian email and chat services, and at the Graduate Library's Information Center (IC) desk and the Undergraduate Library reference desk.  I am also a member of the MLibrary Web Committee, the General Reference and Popular Press (GRPP) E-team, and the Library's MLK Committee.

I am happy to schedule personal consultations with students and/or answer questions via email. Please feel free to email or call me directly with questions or to set up an appointment!
