Learning Librarian, Children's Literature LibrarianLearning Programs and Initiatives · Learning and Teaching
I primarily work with beginning-level researchers, but I also assist students throughout their educational experience. I teach library resources sessions to many different classes and meet with students individually to help them with their papers and research. I also support the students in the Women in Science and Engineering Residential Program, the Michigan Research and Discovery Scholars, the Blavin Scholars, and the Stamps Scholars. In addition, I support the research and instructional needs for those faculty, researchers, and students throughout the university community who are studying children's literature at any level and manage the Children's Literature Collection on the 3rd Floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library. In 2017, I was the recipient of the U-M University Librarian Recognition Award and the ALA Library Instruction Round Table's Librarian Recognition Award. Finally, I teach library-related courses for the College of Literature, Sciences, and the Arts, including ALA 270: Fake News, Lies, and Propaganda: How to Sort Fact From Fiction.
