  • Background and Areas of Expertise


    Prior to getting my library degree, I completed a doctorate in American Culture Studies (with a specialization in critical perspectives in film, media, and culture) as well as a master’s degree in Journalism and a graduate certificate in Public History. My research interests in these areas include the use of documentary film as a means of place branding, popular music and television, the portrayal of librarians in popular culture, and music journalism. My interests in librarianship include critical information literacy (particularly among first-year students), media collection development issues (e.g. copyright, streaming vs. physical collections, access and sharing), scholarly communication, open educational resources, and 24-hour service in academic libraries.

    Before coming to Dickinson College, I worked for the library systems at Ohio University and the University of Pittsburgh. I also previously taught courses in Radio Production, Academic Writing, and American Culture Studies at Bowling Green State University. I serve in elected and appointed positions in state and national library professional associations, and I am a member of the editorial team for the peer-reviewed, open access journal Pennsylvania Libraries: Research & Practice.

    I am always delighted to assist students and faculty with their research. Please feel free to contact me with questions or to schedule a research consultation.
