I am responsible for managing and developing world-class library collections in all areas related to European Studies, including European languages, literatures, and cultures, at the George A. Smathers Libraries. 

I liaise and collaborate with faculty and students from the Departments of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, Spanish and Portuguese, as well as from the Center for European Studies. As part of these relationships, I provide specialized reference services, including library and research instruction for faculty, undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars conducting research in the fields of French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese Studies.

I also collaborate with several additional Departments and Centers across campus, including the Departments of History and English as well as the Center for Humanities in the Public Sphere, to further library Digital Humanities initiatives and partnerships. 

Finally, I provide general reference, instruction, and outreach services; curate and design exhibits for both campus and public communities; write competitive grant applications; and participate on project teams for library-wide grants.
