Instructional Services Librarian
As an instructional librarian, I strive to provide quality educational opportunities so students learn not only how to be effective and ethical consumers of information, but also how to find their place in the scholarly conversation that is an integral part of the academic experience. I also hope to show students that the library is a welcoming place where they will always find someone willing to help them, no matter what their level of need may be.
