Program Officer, Canadian Association of Research Libraries
Areas of expertise
I was a librarian for 8 years in a small, primarily undergraduate university setting, where I was involved in reference, instruction, outreach, and collections, but developed expertise primarily in the areas of copyright and scholarly communication.

I now work at a library association, juggling many projects, participating in some in a more administrative role and in others in a more direct, contributing role. Although I am a member of a team that collaborates closely, my work is currently done remotely (telecommuting).

Prior to becoming a librarian, I worked in film and TV production and at various Toronto film festivals.

- bilingual, and interested in working in both French and English
- considering positions done via telecommuting
- interested in Scholarly Communications, Copyright, Open Education
- curious about library association work

...or whatever else you think I may be able to help you with!

I currently work as an IL librarian and do mostly instruction and research support in the social sciences. My team is very focused on IL concepts, including the ACRL framework, pedagogy as it relates to library-instruction, and critlib. My previous role was a liaison for several social science programs. I also participate in event planning both within the academic library and in the community. Before becoming a librarian I worked for several years in an academic library in a non-librarian role.
