I am happy to be Liaison for the Business and Social Science division. I have worked with several BU/SS faculty over the years and I am happy to assist you in the selection of Library materials, as an embedded librarian in an on-line or blended class, or with any research need.

I have worked in the Harper Library for 20 years. In my current role I am Coordinator of the Reference Department; in that role I maintain the reference collection and oversee the service at the Reference Desk. I administer the Library's automation system which sounds boring but is quite interesting. Finally, I am the liaison to CARLI a statewide library consortium of which Harper is a member.

You may know me from committee work. Over the years I have served on many committees including, Intellectual Property, Institutional Planning, Curriculum, Academic Standards, Sabbaticals, Institutional Promotions, and Faculty Development. I have also served on the Faculty Senate. Please contact me whenever you have a library related question or concern.
