Collection Development

Faculty input is essential to the ongoing development of relevant and responsive collections.  I encourage you to contact me any time with your recommendations.

To accommodate online learning, I'm happy to try to find an e-book or streaming video copy of resources; however, not every title will be available or affordable in those formats. If we have enough time, we can work together to find an alternate resource.

Keeping Current - JournalTOCs

JournalTOCs is a free service you can sign-up with to ensure you're up-to-date on the most recent journal publications in your research area.  Want to know more?  Click here!
