Bio:

I am the subject librarian for Sociology and Criminology, and for Global Interdisciplinary Studies. Within GIS, I am the liaison to Gender and Women's Studies, Africana Studies, Arab and Islamic Studies, Asian Studies, Cultural Studies, Latin American Studies, and Peace & Justice Studies.

Before joining the library staff at Falvey, I was the Psychology and Sociology librarian at the University of Michigan and the Outreach and Information Technology Librarian at Bryn Mawr College.

  • Discuss ways to best incorporate information skills and library materials into your class assignments
  • Meet with your students individually outside class
  • Purchase books and electronic library materials needed for your research and teaching
