Presentation:
Conducted surveys of science collections and library services to science faculty/students in private liberal arts colleges three times over the past three decades, for publication and presentation to colleagues. Collaborated with other science librarians in Ohio to present a poster at the 2012 American Association for the Advancement of Science Meeting (AAAS), on digitization projects in the sciences among the Five Colleges of Ohio. As liaison from the American Library Association to the AAAS, I organize and moderate a session for science librarians at the AAAS annual meeting.

Statement:
Feel welcome to contact me when working on science research papers, or with any question about using the science library. Science abstracting and indexing databases used in conjunction with bibliographic management software can streamline your library research process greatly. An undergraduate degree in science is excellent preparation for graduate work in library and information science, leading to a career in science librarianship. Please talk to me if you'd like to know more.
