I have been a member of the Seton Hall library faculty since 1992. My main interest
is in information literacy, the research process, and the ways in which students learn
how to learn. I have served as coordinator of information literacy, reference librarian,
faculty senator, and member of the committee to develop a new core curriculum for the
university. I have had the benefit to share in this endeavor by teaching the
introductory, Journey of Transformation course. I also serve as library liaison for
nursing and allied health, art, music, museum studies, and women' studies. Outside
the library, my interests focus on music, dance, and theatrical performance.
