As subject specialist for English and Communication, I provide research support to students, faculty, and staff in literary and media studies-related disciplines. This means I manage local research resources in these subject areas for teaching and learning. I also work with established and emerging scholars to ensure they can access and use these resources efficiently and effectively. Further, I work with faculty to plan, deliver, and improve information literacy instruction in their disciplines. And, I assist students and faculty in understanding copyright and author rights. All in all, I work to advance student and faculty success.
