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:
- Historical research
- Primary sources - how to find them and how to use them
- Biographical searches
- Building bibliographies
- Proper citing techniques
- ...and much more!
