About me

As liaison librarian, I help students, faculty, and staff effectively gather health information to inform their decision-making, research inquiries and academic endeavors. My main duties include:

  • Provide instruction on finding, evaluating, and using health information sources
  • Consult with students about health research and tools to manage research (ex: citation tools)
  • Select books, journals, databases, videos, and more to support teaching & learning at JMU
  • Help instructors understand copyright and fair use as they apply to course materials

Get started with your research with Research Guides or make an appointment to meet with me about your specific topic!
