About me

I am the Data Services Librarian and liaison to the Department of Economics and the Institute of Advanced Study. I help members of the University of Minnesota and the broader community who have questions about data and economics. I also resolve problems with access to books and datasets, journals, databases, and other resources in my subject areas, make purchasing decisions, and take requests for new materials.

You're welcome to contact me at any time. My office is in Room 1 Wilson Library. I post about data at @umdatalib, library issues at Google+ - Amy West and my departments and institutes at Library News.
