I am the librarian for the Institute of Forensic Science and related coursework at Texas Tech University.  I perform consultations and collaborate with faculty and students affiliated with the department.  I teach classes and workshops and provide one-on-one research consultations in-person, via email and chat IM.  I also purchase new books, ebooks, multimedia, and provide other online research sources for the department in addition to conducting my own research in and about university libraries.

Your personal librarian can help when you...

  • have questions about the library.
  • are a distance student and need help navigating web resources.
  • have an assignment requiring peer-reviewed journal articles or library materials.
  • need an interlibrary loan/ ILLiad account.
  • need to write with a writing style or find style manual websites.
  • need to cite and track articles for future use.
  • want to improve searches and understand what/why you are searching in a database.
  • find a citation of an article but don't know how to find it.

I look forward to helping you with your research!
