Journalism and Communication Studies Librarian
I am the subject librarian who provides support for the School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Communication Studies Department in the College of Liberal Arts. I help scholars and communication researchers with questions about collections, research methods, data management, and other research services. I support instructors with class presentations and help students find information for their research papers and assignments.
Please contact me with any questions about communication or media studies, newspapers, audience research, advertising campaigns, public relations, and public opinion. I can also help with market research, consumer spending analysis, and researching companies or nonprofit organizations.
Contact me by email, phone, or use this appointment scheduler:
