As the Data Services Librarian, I help coordinate the Data @ Reed Team and the Federal Depository Library Program for government documents. I am also the library liaison to the Linguistics and Psychology departments and participate in the Personal Librarian program to help first-year students with any research needs.

I can help you find or acquire existing datasets, write a data management plan, archive your data, or write a data citation. I can work with you to improve your research skills in searching databases and using citation management software like Zotero and EndNote.


I am available to work with students and faculty in the classroom, in the lab, at the reference desk, or by appointment. My office hours are 4-5pm on Thursdays and 11am-12pm on Fridays. To meet at another time, you can book an appointment with me by clicking the button below.
