Research / Service Area

My interests focus on the impact of new and emerging technologies on library services and spaces. I am also interested in the information-seeking behaviors of the university students of tomorrow, the post-millennial, iGeneration students now in elementary and high school.

Service Statement

Service to the Libraries, university, and profession is an essential component of academic librarianship. I presently serve on a number of committees and task forces.
