I have been a faculty member at the USF Tampa Library since January of 2005. Before that, I came from Virginia Tech where I worked as the College Librarian for Education & Human Development. I spent much of my professional life as an academic librarian, first at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, at the Center for Research Libraries in Chicago, and then at Virginia Tech.
