Reference Coordinator
Liaison to the Humanities

I'm the librarian for the humanities including: Women’s studies; Philosophy; Africana studies; Chicano/a/x studies; Asian Pacific studies; Labor Studies; Interdisciplinary studies; Modern Languages; Communications; English; History; and Negotiation, Conflict Resolution & Peacebuilding. I’m happy to work with students to get started on their research, find sources, apply a critical lens to evaluating sources; and cite sources.

I collaborate with faculty to develop their students disciplinary research skills through virtual and in person instruction, create course or discipline specific learning objects, and integrate information literacy into their curriculum.
