Professional Philosophy
My goal is to take every opportunity - be it during a reference interaction or an instruction session - to enhance the library user's knowledge about library services and resources.  I feel that the most important aspect of my job is enthusiastically teaching students about the world of information: searching for it, evaluating it, and using it properly.  I aspire to provide excellent and personable service to students, faculty, and other library users, to be helpful and friendly to all, and to be sensitive about issues of patron privacy and cultural diversity. I also endeavor to provide "techno-therapy," enhancing library users' sense of comfort and proficiency with technology.  Additionally, I have an enduring interest in library marketing and promotion -- I feel strongly that even the best library services in the world aren't going to be useful if no one knows about them!
