I'm the Humanities Librarian in the department of Research Services at Mitchell Memorial Library. I primarily provide research support, instruction, and other services directly to the students in the humanities, and additionally, I provide outreach and research support to the Shackouls Honors College as the Honors College Librarian and to the Center for the Advancement of Service-Learning (CASLE) as the Service-Learning Librarian.

  • English
  • African American Studies

  • Information Literacy in general education and discipline-specific courses
  • Research and citation habits of literary scholars
  • Intersections of Writing and Research pedagogy
  • Digital Humanities in the library

I teach the libraries' only for-credit course, "Critical Writing and Research in Literary Studies," as a co-instructor with a faculty in the English Department. I'm also interested in incorporating the threshold concepts from ACRL's Framework for Information Literacy within this class.
