As a social sciences librarian, I support students and faculty working in anthropology, sociology, and economics. As a member of the Center for Digital Scholarship, I am interested in increasing access to social science research through activities such as archiving scholarly output in institutional repositories, encouraging data sharing among researchers, and promoting open access. I also serve as the government information librarian and the campus representative to the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).
