Welcome to my portfolio! Here you will find three cases of my professional work that speak to my outlook on librarianship. In each, I will summarize the work that was done, its impact & how it connects to themes in library and information science, and what my next steps are.

Philosophy statement

Libraries are all about people: serving patrons through collections that meet their needs, working effectively with each other, and partnering with folks within the university and across the country to achieve great things. I take this seriously, and it is something you’ll see throughout my work. You’ll also get a sense of my analytical leanings. In my efforts to serve our patrons in the best possible way, I am always trying to understand more. In collections work, I ground all decisions in the best possible evidence – and am developing new and innovative methods that aren’t found elsewhere in our profession.
