For Faculty

Contact me to schedule a session your class. These sessions can be to help students learn how to use library resources, such as identifying and accessing scholary articles and materials. Usually these sessions are tailored around a specific assignment or research project.

For Faculty & Students

Contact me to schedule a one-on-one consultation. Similar to what we do at the reference desk but these sessions are generally reserved for more in-depth help specific to my areas of expertise.
