I may be away from my office, at the reference desk, teaching a class, or in a meeting. Contact information is on the left of this screen. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org is an efficient way to reach me.
Reference & Instruction: Request a lecture
I list the classes I am teaching each semester, for easy follow up by students. See
Additional instruction is also possible if faculty embed me as a librarian for their class on Moodle.
Web pages are put up shortly before the class, and may be revised after teaching because of student/faculty input. Web pages will address goals of curriculum mapping, for example, introduce basic concepts, general search techniques for introductory classes, more sophisticated research techiques for advanced classes. All classes address the professors' assignment(s) and preferences. Most lectures are in Oviatt Labs B or C, west wing of Oviatt Library's main floor.
