About me

As the liaison to the U-M School of Information, I: 

  • provide reference and instruction support to the U-M School of Information
  • purchase materials supporting research in these subject areas, in addition to selecting materials related to news and general periodicals 
  • consult with faculty and students about their research or assignments
  • teach students how to effectively use library resources and services

As research impact librarian, I also empower scholars to create the conditions under which they can establish:

  • a strong public identity,
  • a coherent account of their contributions to the scholarly enterprise,
  • and a persuasive body of evidence for the impact of their work within the academy,
  • ...and for the public.

I meet regularly with faculty and students, both graduate and undergraduate. Please feel free to email me with a question, make an appointment for a research consultation, have me visit your class regarding library research, or create a library research guide for your course. 

My office phone number has been temporarily disconnected while I am working remotely due to COVID-19. Please contact me by email or by requesting an appointment through LibCal.
