About

As the University Library's subject specialist for linguistics and economics, I provide library instruction and I purchase research materials to support the Department of Linguistics and the Department of Economics.  I am available for individual meetings with faculty and students.  Please contact me for an appointment to talk about your research project!  Book an appointment.

 

Background

M.Phil., English Studies, Oxford University (1990); M.S. (Library Science), Simmons College (1985); B.A. (English & History), Hampshire College (1981).

I have been with the University of Michigan since 2000.  Prior professional positions were at the University of Hong Kong Libraries, State Library of Massachusetts, law firm Johnston Stokes & Master, and The Boston Conservatory.  As a librarian I have worked in the fields of anthropology, social work, law and music.  I have extensive experience with government documents and audio-visual materials.  I served as Head of the U-M Social Work Library, 2005-2009 and was Chair of the ACRL Anthropology & Sociology Section (ANSS), 2010-2011.

Responsibilities

In addition to being a subject specialist and liaison to the Departments of Linguistics and Economics, I am Coordinator of Social Science Collections in the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library.  In this capacity, I share responsibility for all collections of the Graduate Library with Loyd Mbabu and Kristen Catellana.  I chair the Social Sciences E-Team, a standing committee that evaluates and selects electronic resources in the social sciences.
