About what I do
I help with research questions at the reference desk, in my office and in course instruction.
I manage the Federal Depository Library Program, a collection of materials in all formats and types (tangible and online) from the Government Printing Office.
I support the Economic and Business Department, the Polictical Science Department and the North American Studies.
In that capacity, I build the collection by ordering materials (books, films, subscriptions to databases and journals, etc) and analyzing databases and journal subscriptions.
I provide instruction for courses and research support. This may be a 15 minute overview or a set of instruciton sessions discussing research resources (from the internet and search engines to subscription databases to specific tools such as Qualtrics (for surveys) or RefWorks (for citation management).
