What is your favorite spot in the library? My favorite spot is actually the doorway of my office [501] looking out because I have a great view. A former president of the university came here once on a walk-about and said “Wow, you have a better view than I do!” I’m also on this really vibrant floor, so it’s kind of relaxing to look out my front door because I have this great campus view, but it’s also invigorating because there’s so much activity on this floor.

What’s the best thing about working for the Libraries? Hands down, that would be my colleagues. I work with such a great bunch of people who really care about the experience that our constituents get and are always working together looking for creative ways to make it the best it can possibly be.

What is one thing you wish students knew about the Libraries? That we’re more than just a building to be in. There are people here who can help make their research and academic lives easier. And also to not be afraid to ask a question because to me, no question is a dumb question.
