Reference and Library Instruction

As staff in Special Collections and Archives, I can help you find primary sources from our collection, can connect you to rare books and artists' books, and am available to answer questions about Reed's history.

As an archivist, I work to ensure primary sources are preserved and made accessible to people both now and in the future. Have a website, Facebook page, emails, floppy disks, or a pile of digital files that need to be archived? Come talk with me! I also manage digitization projects, make historical materials available online in Reed Digital Collections, and make sure our digital infrastructure ecosystem is humming along as efficiently as possible.

I manage the development of Reed Digital Collections, our digital collections software built here at Reed as a Library/CIS collaboration. Wish it did something it doesn't yet do? Let me know!

As the library liaison to the Spanish department, I am available to help students at the reference desk, by appointment, or in the classroom.
