Information Literacy Coordinator, Associate Librarian
NBS Social Sciences Librarian

As the librarian for social and behavioral sciences within CNBS I provide research assistance on all parts of the research process including accessing psychological tests and measures, finding scholarly articles, and APA citation. I partner with faculty on integrating information literacy across the curriculum and designing in-person lessons and online tutorials for specific courses. I also curate collections for my liaison areas and can provide support with the scholarly publication process. As the information literacy coordinator, I lead the library's information literacy program including our LIB 151 course and assessment.
