Coordinator, Shapiro Undergraduate Library Collections


As Coordinator, Shapiro Undergraduate Library Collections, I oversee the collections (print and electronic) and collection budget for the Undergraduate Library.  I am part of the Library's Consulation and Discovery Unit, in the Connected Scholarship team.

I am one of the Ask a Librarian service coordinators.  I work at the Ask a Librarian reference desk at the Hatcher Library, answer questions on Ask a Librarian email and IM.

I can be reached at my office in the Shapiro Library or by phone or email.  You may schedule an appointment with me here.


I have a B. A. in Business Administration and a Master of Librarianship (M. Libr.) both from the University of Washington.

Prior to becoming Coordinator, Shapiro Undergraduate Library Collections, I served as the Economics Librarian from 2009-2015, as the head of University Reserves from 2000-2009 and as the Director of the Michigan Information Transfer Source from 1991-2000, all with the Univeristy Library.  I was an adjunct instructor at the School of Information from 1993-1999 teaching two courses (Searching Online Databases and Starting and Operating an Information Brokerage).   Before joining the University Library in 1991, I worked for seven years as a corporate librarian with AT&T and Crum & Forster Commercial Insurance Company.


In addition to the responsibliities listed above, I serve on several committees.
