Background and areas of expertise

As a student at Dickinson College, I majored in History and earned secondary teaching certification. My master's research concerned providing effective library service to patrons whose first language is not English. I am responsible for the running the library's teaching program with particular focus on first-year students. Students are my first priority!

I can be of particular help with:

  • Historical research
  • Primary sources - how to find them and how to use them
  • Biographical searches
  • Building bibliographies
  • Proper citing techniques
  • ...and much more!
