I am an Academic Liaison Librarian at the University of Guelph-Humber; I offer curriculum and program support for Kinesiology, Psychology, and Electives through collection development, reference service, and information literacy instruction and programming. My responsibilities also include designing and developing electronic resources and service portals, particularly in a distance education and mobile-friendly format, with an eye to offering a consistent level of library services and resources regardless of the students’ ability, location, or means of access.
My previous career was in book publishing, where I worked with publishers including House of Anansi Press and Random House Canada. My background has proven useful, particularly from a collections management and copyright standpoint. As a former on-campus and online faculty member at Ryerson University’s Publishing Program I also bring instructor experience and instructional design skills to IL sessions, reference service, and elearning objects.
Please have a look around my site; my combination of library, instructional, and publishing experience has given me the opportunity to showcase examples of learning objects, presentations, and projects I’ve worked on over the years. I also muse aloud about the library and information profession — with a smattering of publishing apologetics — on my blog.
