Presentation:
Conducted a survey of science collections and library services to science faculty/students in private liberal arts colleges, along with Deborah Peoples of Ohio Wesleyan Univ. We presented the results at a meeting of science librarians held here in Oct. 2007. Collaborated with other science librarians in Ohio to present a poster at the 2012 American Association for the Advancement of Science Meeting, on digitization projects in the sciences among the Five Colleges of Ohio. Talk to me if you're interested in how an undergrad degree in science can naturally lead to science librarianship.

Statement:
I would love to take five months off and hike the Appalachian Trail. Maybe I should say seven months... regardless, it's longer than I can spare at this point in life. Working with Obies is also a pleasure. Don't hesitate to contact me as you're working on science research papers, or have any question about using the science library.
