As the Director of Collection Services, I oversee the department responsible for purchasing, describing, managing, and analyzing our collection of books, databases, journals, and more. I work with a terrific team to make sure our print and online collections are accessible via the library catalog, database A-Z page, and research guides and that they support the research needs of our students and faculty. In addition, I coordinate the Federal Depository Library Program for government documents.

I am also the library liaison to the Linguistics and Psychology departments. I provide instruction in research skills including information literacy, database searching, and citation management software
