Chemistry Librarian


I serve as liaison between Chemistry Department and the University of Michigan Library. I support research, teaching and learning at the Department of Chemistry and other fields strongly related to Chemistry in the College of Pharmacy and the Medical School. I provide training and consultations on the use of library resources and research methodologies as well as develop Chemistry collections to support the curriculum and serve research needs. I provide instructions on scientific writing, manuscript preparation, Wikipedia editing, library resources, literature search databases, citation management software, and crystallography. I collaborate with faculty and students on developing outreach projects, supporting DEI initiatives, grant and manuscript preparation, teaching-with-technology projects. My current interests lie in chemistry education using digital learning objects, scholarly literature analysis using data mining tools, and open access publication practices.
