Social Sciences Librarian: Family Social Science, Kinesiology, and Social Work

86 Magrath Library


As liaison to the School of Social Work, School of Kinesiology and Dept. of Family Social Science I am the contact person for students, faculty and staff looking for information to support their research and teaching.

I’m a ‘search geek’ and love the hunt for information, and am passionate about helping others to be more effective and efficient in their own research. I have particular interest in supporting systematic reviews, scoping reviews, and other forms of research synthesis. My personal research focuses on the quality of searches in published synthesizing reviews and information seeking behavior among practitioners.

Please contact me to set up a class presentation, a one-on-one consultation, or for help tracking down that elusive article. I’m also the Collections Coordinator for the St. Paul Campus libraries.
