Selected Works


My academic background is in anthropology and prehistoric archaeology and my graduate work was concentrated in paleoethnobotanical studies in the Southwestern United States. I have worked as a librarian for nearly 30 years in a variety of areas.

In the Georgia Southern University Libraries, I am the Scholarly Communications Librarian and serve as part of a team providing outreach and research support for Georgia Southern's faculty and graduate students.

As a Library Liaison, I do outreach and support for collection development in the Social Sciences and Engineering, as well as selected departments in the Humanities.

In addition to teaching formal classes in information literacy and research methods, I have taught computer applications courses (both in the traditional classroom and online) and Freshman Orientation/First-Year Experience courses. I also have experience with serials control and management.

As a library faculty member, my philosophy of teaching is based on two main objectives: 1) to help students gain the knowledge and skills they need to become passionate learners and critical thinkers; and 2) encourage them to establish a habit of lifelong learning.
