About me

I serve as the Library’s subject specialist for social work in support of research and learning across all aspects of the field. I purchase social work materials for the library, and offer library instruction and research consultations in social work and allied areas. I can also offer both general and course-integrated instruction and workshops designed to foster the effective use of information resources and the effective application of new technologies in teaching and scholarship in the social sciences. 

I have been a librarian at the University of Michigan since August of 1985 working in several roles over that time.

My education includes master's degrees in Library Science (U-M, 1985) and Sociology (U-M, 1983) with a special interest in social psychology. My undergraduate degree was in East Asian Studies (Princeton, 1979).

I have academic knowledge of and particular interest in social sciences librarianship in general, including data and data management. I have expertise and experience in teaching, collection development, and reference. I am deeply involved in incorporating diversity and intercultural competencies into my work and across the Library.
