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.

For our Online Fall, I'm happy to try to find an e-book or streaming video copy of required 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.

Information Literacy Instruction Sessions

I am pleased to offer subject-specific information literacy sessions geared to the needs of your course or to an assignment.  Please contact me well in advance so I have adequate time to plan a quality session. There are many different options and I welcome the opportunity to discuss them with you!

For Fall 2020, I'm offering:

  • A traditional information literacy session live via Zoom
  • Pre-recorded video content
  • Step-by-step Powerpoint sides
  • A blend of the above methods, i.e., pre-recorded content that can be viewed by students while I'm standing by for extra assistance in a drop-in Zoom room

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!
