My dissertation examined the difference in student performance on library and research assignments in an online course with different timing and duration of an online embedded librarian.
I am interested in the integration of information literacy in the curriuculm to ensure students have the skills to be successful lifelong learners. A particular interest is the role of the library in distance education.
From my work as an online student and my involvement as an advisor with student clubs at HCC, I have a strong interest in the role of social networking tools for community building.
I completed my library degree program in 2001. I originally explored the library profession as a way to combine my interests in customer service and research. Being a librarian has certainly proved a great way to combine these two interests. When I became a community college librarian, I discovered that I needed to know more about education and technology in order to better serve my students and colleagues.
