As the Engineering Librarian, I work with faculty and students in the College of Engineering to help them access and utilize the resources they need for teaching, learning, and research. I provide instruction for undergraduate and graduate classes, provide in-person research consultations, and provide collection development support. As the Patent and Trademark Resource Center librarian, I help users acquire the information they need regarding patents and trademarks through individual consultations and workshops.
I hold an M.L.I.S. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an M.A. in Medieval Literatures from the University of York, England.
