As Emerging Technologies Librarian for the Health Sciences, I work with social, semantic, and emerging technologies, identifying trends relevant to the educational, research, clinical and creative endeavors of the University of Michigan. I provide resources, tips, training, workshops, consultations, and collaboration, and more.
I have an extremely high volume of email. If I do not reply, most likely I have not seen your message. The best way to reach me is via Twitter (@pfanderson). For immediate assistance with general reference questions please contact Information Services (734-764-1210; firstname.lastname@example.org).
