In my work as a Reference Librarian at Albertsons Library, I focus on providing both
traditional and online reference and instruction, selecting materials that support the
College of Education, and reaching out to faculty and students. Librarian and faculty
collaboration allows me to provide relevant and meaningful library services. I specialize
in information literacy for education researchers, first-year students, and history
majors, as well as finding innovative and online methods for providing library services.
