I currently work as the E-Science Librarian at Clemson University. I am the
reference liaison to many subject areas, including biology, chemistry, physics &
astronomy, animal & veterinary science, agriculture, environmental science, genetics
& biochemistry, and forestry. I also work with TigerPrints and data management plans.
