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 help coordinate the Data @ Reed Team and I am the Federal Depository Library Program coordinator for government documents.

As the library liaison to the Linguistics and Psychology departments, I provide instruction in research skills, database searching, and using citation management software.

I also participate in the library's Personal Librarian program and help first-year students with any research needs.

I provide classroom instruction, individual or small group consultation, and workshops on these topics.


I am available to work with students and faculty in the classroom, lab, reference desk, or by appointment. My office hours are 11am-12pm on Thursdays and Fridays.
