Student Engagement Librarian


I have worked at the Shapiro Undergraduate Library for 17 years, and during that time have focused on library instruction and reference services. I am a liaison to the University Learning Communities, and I also coordinate programs and events, including new student orientation. I manage a the Student Engagment Program, which includes Student Mini-Grants, Engagement Fellows, and Student Ambassadors.  


I have a Library and Information Science Degree from Kent State University, and a B.A. and M.A. in English Literature from The University of Toledo.


As University Learning Communities Librarian, I am liaison to the various learning communities on campus by teaching specialized information literacy sessions to these groups, connecting the LCs with other librarian subject specialists who can better serve a particular disciplinary need, and offer online resources that will help support the common curriculum for some LCs.
