I am the subject librarian for the Departments of Entomology, Forest Resources, and Fisheries, Wildlife & Conservation Biology. As liaison to these departments, I provide assistance with accessing databases, finding and evaluating resources, and helping with any kind of library-related research. As I am also responsible for purchasing new materials for the above subject areas, any new requests should be sent to me. Finally, I am available to speak with classes about the library and library research and can offer consultations on library-related assignments.

Particular interests of mine include: open access policies, library assessment, gaming and education, and data management. (Researchers: I would love to talk to you about your research and your data management needs.)

I am offering weekly office hours for students, staff, and faculty that would like to meet with me.

Tuesdays: 1pm-3pm
Fridays: 10am-12pm
