I’m the liaison librarian to the College of Education and the product manager for the UAL’s installation of Libguides. I earned my MLS from the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I work with faculty and students throughout the research lifecycle by offering in-depth research assistance and support. I enjoy using my teaching background to collaborate with faculty to integrate information literacy outcomes into class curricula both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I’ve been involved in several projects to develop instructional tools to support student learning. One of these was the award winning , open source, Guide on the Side project which created a system that allowed librarians to quickly and easily create pedagogically sound interactive tutorials.
