Director, Access and Information Services, and Regional Depository Librarian

Research and Learning - Access & Information Services, 199 Wilson Library

Since joining the staff of the University of Minnesota Libraries in July 2007, I have worked within the Research and Learning Division with an emphasis on managing the federal and international government documents collections, and in providing leadership first to the Social Sciences and Professional Programs Department then Information and Access Services Department. Besides working with the faculty, staff and students at the University of Minnesota, my role as a regional depository librarian within the Federal Depository Library Program ( provides opportunities to work with libraries across the region. The University Libraries’ regional depository serves the states of Minnesota, South Dakota and Michigan, and works with over 70 selective depositories in public, academic, special and law libraries to support free access to government information.
