Some of my latest projects

I’m constantly thinking of ways to do outreach to undergrads and grad students. It’s harder than you think! We offered workshops in the spring but there was 0 attendance. So… how else can I reach students at the optimal time?

  • study the academic timeline for key points in a student’s career when s/he would need assistance from a librarian
  • talk to faculty about ideas for what students need help with
  • figure out where students can get writing assistance

I’m also on a working group on open access so we are planning programs for Open Access Week (October 22-28). Lots of work to do here!

We’re also developing a Popular Science Collection at Kresge! I’m really excited for this. We’ve already got a list of books for our pilot collection and starting to build a research guide to augment the collection.
