As the College Librarian for Science, Life Sciences, and Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University (Virginia Tech), I work closely with the Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise, Engineering Education, Mathematics, and Computer Science departments.  By developing and providing comprehensive, discipline-specific support for these groups, I support the University's overall mission to "Invent the Future." 

In addition to my direct work with these departments, I have been appointed departmental Information Literacy Coordinator, beginning July 1, 2011.  In this role, I look forward to developing a campus-wide information literacy strategy, coordinating professional development of instruction librarians, and integrating assessment into all instruction at University Libraries.

My own research interests include the appropriate use of new and emerging technologies in higher education, instructional design, scholarly communications, and the history of libraries and information science.
