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:
