have been a faculty member at the USF Tampa Library since January of 2005. Before that, I came from Virginia Tech where I worked as the College Librarian for Education & Human Development. I spent much of my professional life as an academic librarian, first at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, at the Center for Research Libraries in Chicago, and then at Virginia Tech. I have also spent several years teaching English, writing, and composition at the high school and collegiate levels. My research and publication interests include academic libraries' use of open access videos, academic librarians' status, collaborative relationships between librarians and academic faculty, diversity resources for teachers, and assessment tools for evaluating library instruction and student learning.
