Brief Biography:

I serve as Commons Librarian, Research, Education and Collections, tenured Associate Professor, at the Phillips Memorial Library at Providence College. I manage the library's knowledge collections: I am responsible for or collaborate with others to manage electronic journals, electronic databases and other resources, electronic collections, and electronic books. I work with my research services and collections colleagues on Library+Commons initiatives and in-class or in-library research education. I collaborate closely with other areas of the Library+Commons, including Collections Services; Technology and Access; Digital Publishing Services; and Special and Archival Collections. I also work closely with teaching and research faculty. I fulfill all requirements of my faculty rank including teaching (i.e. performance of professional responsibilities), scholarship, and service.
