In your own words

My main job is to provide reference assistance and library instruction to the Pitt-Bradford Community. I serve as the liaison librarian to the biological & health disciplines, the physical & computational disciplines, business, hospitality, and nursing. I collect resources in the aforementioned areas to support the curriculum and embed into courses as needed. In addition, I provide service to the University Library System, the Pitt-Bradford Campus, and other outside organizations. I am currently involved in the ACRL Science and Technology Section, but also keep close relationships in the ACRL Distance and Online Learning Section.
