I have been both Technical Services and Reference Librarian at the Harris Library since 1998. I maintain a current awareness of professional issues along with learning and disseminating new library technology. My main work responsibilities include cataloging, acquisitions, and reference. Other activities: daily reference; library in-class instruction; new student orientations; and I am the library’s liaison for the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School’s concentrations of Alcohol Other Drug Abuse (AODA) and Mental Health.
I am actively involved with the Case Library Bibliographic Committee. Also, I have taught a CaseLearns class entitled E-book Bytes Overview. Check out the CaseLearns online site for their current schedule of course offerings with descriptions and registration information. If anyone has a desire or interest in E-books, please feel free to contact me.

I am the reference and instruction librarian at the Harris Library. In my position, I am responsible for providing in-person, telephone, and virtual reference services to students, faculty, and staff. I also organize the library orientation for incoming students and provide guidance to faculty on using Blackboard for creating their course sites. My other duties include providing classroom instruction, and collection development related to community development and nonprofit management.
Prior to working at the Harris Library, I was a reference librarian at the Foundation Center-Cleveland where I provided reference and bibliographic instruction in the areas of nonprofit management, fundraising, and philanthropy. In addition, I was responsible for acquisitions and website development. My educational background includes a B.A. in History from Oberlin College and a Master of Science in Information from the University of Michigan. Currently, I serve as the webmaster for the Cleveland Chapter of the Special Libraries Association (SLA).
