About Me

I  graduated from Southwest Texas State University (Now Texas State University) with both a BA and an MA in History before completing my Masters in Library Science at North Texas State (Now the University of North Texas) in Denton.  I have worked as a Librarian here for over 25 years.  This has given me an opportunity to work with some great colleagues  and students here in the library and elsewhere across campus. 

As Reference/Faculty Outreach Librarian, I provide general reference service to all users.

I also work closely with faculty to provide support for their teaching and research needs. 

More information about services the library offers for faculty is available on my Faculty Services page

I also have expertise in the area of Univesity History and work closely with our University Archives staff in assisting anyone seeking information about the history of this great institution. I recently completed a video  "Our Texas State World" which covers our  history from the standpoint of sustainability.  The project was a lot of fun and covers 12000 years of history in just 25 minutes!

I serve on the library's Digital Collections team.    Digital Collections is our online repository in which we make the scholarship of our campus freely available to everyone, via the Web.  My task is to identify publications of our faculty/staff which are available to us and to work with the authors to get them posted to Digital Collections.  If you have articles/presentations/papers, or other works you would like us to post, please contact me, I'd love to work with you to help showcase your scholarship.   

Feel free to contact me at any time.
