Linguistics and Economics Librarian; Collection Coordinator, Social Sciences and Undergraduate LibrarySocial Sciences and Clark Library · Research
I support research, learning and teaching activities of faculty and students of the Departments of Linguistics and Economics. I am available for individual appointments with students and faculty.
I have been with the University of Michigan since 2000. Previously I worked at the University of Hong Kong, the State Library of Massachusetts, and law firm Johnston Stokes & Master. As a librarian I have worked in the fields of economics, linguistics, anthropology, social work, law, history and music. I also have extensive experience with government documents and audio-visual materials. I was Head of the U-M Social Work Library from 2005-2009. I am co-chair of the ACRL Language & Linguistics Discussion Group.
I am the Collection Coordinator of Social Sciences, and I have shared responsibility for all Hatcher Graduate Library collections with Loyd Mbabu and Kristen Castellana. I also chair the Social Sciences E-Team, a standing committee that evaluates and selects electronic resources in the social sciences. I am the interim Collection Coordinator for the Undergraduate Library.
