About me

I'm a Reference Outreach & Instruction librarian at Minitex, a program of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities University Libraries. Previous to my position at Minitex, I worked at Illinois State University's Milner Library as an Instructional Services Librarian. In my role at Minitex I, along with my colleagues, provide a statewide reference referral service as well as instructional and technical support for the statewide e-resources.

My areas of professional interest and experience include the design and development of instructional materials and online tutorials, e-learning/teaching, instruction of first-year university and high school students, curriculum development, and professional development for library staff and teachers.
