As Acquisitions & Collection Development Librarian for Watzek, I provide students and faculty with access to the resources they need to do research. This means working to build a strong local collection of books, journals, and databases while staying on top of trends in scholarly publishing. I also work closely with my colleagues on the west coast to expand and strengthen the regional collection available to you through Summit.
I've worked at Lewis & Clark since October 2007, relocating from the Atlanta area, where I also worked in higher ed. My background is in Film Theory and American Studies, and I am the coordinator of Watzek Screens, which showcases several films per semester for the L&C community. In my off hours, I can sometimes be found scouring eastside Portland record stores for used vinyl.
