Research Summary

My research has focused on academic libraries, library spaces, and library research (search strategies, patent searching, managing, and evaluating information, and bibliometrics). I support faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students with setting up research alerts, database searching, and bibliographic management (EndNote X1-X8, EndNote Basic, and Zotero). Specifically, I provide in-depth support to the College of Health.
