Fine and Performing Arts Librarian, UW-Seattle

I'm Your Librarian!

As the Fine and Performing Arts Librarian at UW-Seattle, I liaise with the School of Art + Art History + Design, School of Drama, and the Department of Dance.

How I Can Help You

For students, I can:

  • Meet with you for a one-on-one research consultation to jump start your research (use the "Schedule Appointment" button)
  • Help you navigate the complex web of library resources available to support you and your research
  • Answer your questions via email, phone, in-person, or virtually via Zoom; I'm flexible!
  • Talk with you about library resources, spaces, and services
  • Speak at your student organization events about library services and research strategies


For faculty and instructors, I can:

  • Speak to your classes (invite me to your classroom!). I'm happy to introduce students to research tools and strategies, and show them how best to use the library. I can provide a brief library orientation, or teach longer workshops depending on your course goals.
  • Create a Canvas page tailored to class assignments or to provide information about library resources
  • Discuss ways to best incorporate research skills and library materials into your class assignments
  • Purchase books and other materials needed for your research - please e-mail me your suggestions!
  • Meet with your students individually
  • Track down tricky citations
  • Do a quick literature review
  • Act as a liaison communicating the department's concerns and needs to library administration
  • Meet informally to chat about your research, work, and teaching priorities. This helps me better understand how I can support you!
