Research / Service Area

I'm interested in the transition of high school students to first year undergraduates.  Specifically, how well have they been prepared for the role library and information sources will play on a successful undergraduate experience?  How information literate and information fluent are incoming students?  What positive and negative roles have the Internet explosion and tools like Wikipedia and Google had on students' perceived and actual information management skill level?  Finally, what role does the library play in educating a global citizenry?

I'm also actively engaged in the design and production of library instruction modules that adhere to best pedagogical practice with tangible, built-in assessment.  To that end I utilize such tools as Captivate, Camtasia, Power Point, Prezi, and UBLearns (Blackboard).
