I joined the MLibrary in August 2013. I am also a faculty associate and an Executive Committee member of the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies. I am responsible for the Chinese Studies collection development at the Asia Library. I provide reference services for the interdisciplinary Chinese Studies community across the campus and work closely with faculty and students on their research projects. I offer course-integrated instruction sessions and research-related workshops.
I earned my PhD degree in Communications (media history) from the University of Pittsburgh in 2013. Before coming to the States, I obtained my M.L.S degree from Nanjing University with an emphasis on Chinese bibliography and print culture. I also hold dual B.A degrees in Publishing and Laws from Wuhan University.
I have conducted digital scholarship workshops and consultation sessions to promote data literacy among U-M Chinese studies community. I can help identify data sources on China and help researchers determine how reliable the data might be. I can acquire data sources to support interdisciplinary research in Chinese studies. I can speak to the need for metadata and help researchers identify what metadata might be needed for collections in Chinese studies or digital scholarship projects.
