I am the Science Librarian at Seton Hall University Libraries in South Orange, New
Jersey. I hold a MLS from Rutgers University and a PhD in Biological Anthropology from
Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to moving into the library field, I conducted
field research on capuchin monkeys in Costa Rica, Argentina and Suriname, and published
numerous articles in primate behavioral ecology. My current interests include patterns of
information acquisition and sharing, library usage statistics, e-resources and e-books,
copyright and scholarly communication.
