I am an academic reference and instruction librarian with media, film, and Communication Studies and Political Science collection and liaison responsibilities. My research interests include areas of librarianship which inform my practice including information seeking behavior, reference services, information literacy and instruction, scholarly communication and library impact on student success.
I am also very interested in new forms of scholarship and the ways in which those scholarly products impact their fields. Related to this is the question of how "altmetrics" will impact the acceptance of non-traditional scholarly commodities from the promotion and tenure committees that determine a scholar's success.
