Philosophy of Education:
I am committed to helping students learn how to better discover, organize, and produce good information.
Before Wheaton, I was:
The library director for a Bible college.
Right now I'm working on:
Trying to better understand the changes in scholarly communication as they relate to issues of open access.
One thing I wish I could teach everyone about my field:
The importance of academic libraries in fostering student success
Last book I read for fun:
Devices and Desires by P.D. James. I enjoy the way that James combines elements of faith and reason in her approach to crime fiction.
If I could travel anywhere, I'd visit:
Scotland and the North of England.
