  • Formal Title: Head, Reference and Information Literacy Dept. and Associate Professor
  • Department: Reference
  • Specialty: Humanities subjects, EndNote, and I’ll pretty much take a crack at any other subjects
  • Years with the Ekstrom Library: 16
  • What’s the coolest thing about working in the library: working with really smart people.
  • Interesting reference question: Pretty much any question—hunting for the information is what I enjoy the most.
  • Book I’m currently reading: Reading Wide Awake by Patrick Shannon; Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin
  • Favorite Web 2.0 Tool: LibGuides (professional—it has made creation of help guides so much easier!) and Flickr (personal—I could spend hours!)
  • What’s needed in the 21st Century Classroom: Time to think and reflect away from clicking.
  • Dream profession (other than librarian): Storyteller or owner of a small café/used book store; teaching small children to swim.
  • Interesting fact: My family has three chickens.
