As the Data Services Librarian, I assist students and faculty with finding and acquiring datasets, writing data management plans, archiving data, and data citation. I am available for individual consultation and workshops on these topics. I help coordinate the Data @ Reed Team, which includes staff from the Library, Academic Support Services, and Instructional Technology Services. 

As the library liaison to the Linguistics and Psychology departments, I provide instruction in research skills, database searching, and using citation management software. I am available to work with students and faculty in the classroom, at the reference desk, or by appointment. I also participate in the library's Personal Librarian program and can help first-year students with any research needs.


My office hours are 11am-12pm on Thursdays and Fridays. I am available by appointment as well.
