About Office Hours
Information Literacy Coordinator
The largest part of my job is as an instruction librarian. That means that I’m often the person who will come to classes to give students the details about the library, and some guidance for how to search for information. Class instructors can contact me to schedule classes, either in the library or in the usual classroom, and I work with the instructor to make sure that the class meets their needs.
I work with these departments in instruction, collection development, and reference consultations. If you’re in one of these departments or areas of research, I can help guide you through the research.
Generally speaking, I’m in the library from 9-noon. Since I teach some library instruction sessions, I may be in class during that time. However, I’m also in the library at several times through the day.
I’m also available by appointment.
You can always reach me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The department I work in: Education, Research, and Outreach Services

Two prisms. Isaac Newton (1643-1727) used a prism to demonstrate that white light can be refracted into the spectrum, and reconstituted through a second prism. His Opticks (1704) argued the geometric, particle (or corpuscular) nature of light, central to the physics of light.
Double helix. X-ray crystallography by Rosalind Franklin clarified the shape of DNA, for which James Watson, Francis Crick, and Maurice Wilkins received the 1962 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
“I think…” Charles Darwin’s early sketch of his theory of natural selection became clarified in The Origin of Species (1859).
