Librarian for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies

About

I am responsible for developing the collections that serve disciplines within Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies. Geographically, this field covers an immense territory, from Russia’s polar north down to Mongolia and from Cape Dezhnev to the Czech Republic. With these broad horizons, the SEEES collections support the research, teaching, and learning activities of several UM departments and centers, including the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, the Armenian Studies Program, and the Weiser Centers, to which I serve as liaison. Additionally, I offer bibliographic instruction and research consultation to associated faculty, students, and members of the broader community.
