Current Position

As the Biomedical Research Liaison Librarian, I provide targeted support and services to biomedical researchers in the Duke community.  By providing workshops, research consultations, instructional sessions, assistance with literature searching, and more; I will support the entire publication life-cycle for the biomedical researcher.

I am dedicated to making the library, its resources and information as accessible and user-friendly as possible. I strives to teach transferable skills, relevant across databases, questions and circumstances. Whether you need to answer a specific question or learn how to navigate the library's website, I am happy to help!

I came to Duke after working several years in health science libraries.  As a Libraries Fellow at North Carolina State University I developed instructional and outreach services at the Veterinary Medicine Library and Natural Resources Library.  As an Education and Research Librarian at Virginia Commonwealth University my work focused on providing and developing instruction for a variety of faculty, staff and students.  With a background in biology and information, I enjoy melding the two together and helping others do the same. 

Research Interests

  • Instruction - developing new ways to teach both in-person and electronically
  • Information use - how do researchers find information and what are their information needs

What can I do for you?

  • Help manage compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy
  • Assist in using My Bibliography & SciENcv to create NIH Biosketches
  • Develop literature searches for animal alternatives for IACUC protocols
  • Guest lecture for classes, department meetings, or research teams
  • Collaborate on systematic reviews of the literature and grant preparation
  • Consult on literature search strategies and resource selection
  • Assist you with managing information, from staying up-to-date with the literature to managing citations using software such as EndNote, RefWorks, Medeley, etc.
  • Assist you with copyright and data management issues
