About

As liaison to the chemistry and chemical engineering/materials science departments, I am the go-to person for the University of Minnesota and the broader community for questions about access to online resources in my subject areas; chemical and physical property data; chemical pricing; articles from obscure chemistry journals; chemistry careers outside the lab or classroom; and any other type of chemical information. I talk to classes and research groups on request and offer consultations on library-related assignments. I make purchasing decisions for chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science. Send me your requests for new materials. I am also the Collections Coordinator for Physical Sciences, Engineering, and Mathematics (i.e., College of Science and Engineering subjects).
