I'm a librarian working as Bucknell's Scholarly Communications Officer. In this role, I work with researchers in identifying and exploring their options for publishing and sharing their work- ideally by finding paths that meet the needs of the researcher's career and their personal values. While much of my work is with faculty, hopefully, we'll have a chance to collaborate and work on your research during your time at Bucknell!
I have a Master's of Library and Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master's of Education from Westminster College. I'm very interested in the political, personal, and ethical dimensions of information access as it relates to other forms of organizing and movement work.
When I'm not in the library, I might be at the community garden, making a zine, quilting, hosting potlucks, or just really admiring a dandelion growing through a crack in the sidewalk.
Why make an appointment?
Feel free to make an appointment to meet with me! There are lots of reasons you might want to do so. Together, we can...
explore how to use other materials in line with legal and ethical norms (copyright, fair use, attribution)
identify options for sharing your research and work with scholars and/or other communities
Even if you're just getting started or not even sure what you're doing with, I am always happy to talk through people's research with them, so don't hesitate to stop by the library and visit!
