Scholarly Communications & Social Sciences Librarian Anthropology - Cultural & Linguistic, Honors, Journalism, Judicial Studies, Political Science, Sociology


My work as the social sciences librarian involves helping faculty and students in journalism, judicial studies, political science, sociology, and social psychology, including teaching information literacy. I also educate university members about new initiatives in scholarly publishing, such as open access, open data, and open educational resources. I help answer copyright questions, including issues related to teaching and research. 

I received my M.L.S. from Indiana University-Indianapolis. Before working as an academic librarian, I worked for 10 years as a newspaper reporter. Making sure people have access to information important to them is my jam.

On top of trying to convince researchers to make their work open, I also like to read and travel (two more states, and I'll have visited every state in the country).
