My research is currently focused on information literacy, particularly in the sciences, and an emerging interest in compassionate and sustainable crisis leadership. In information literacy, I'm especially interested in how students learn to distinguish appropriate sources in complex, interdisciplinary contexts. I am also interested in how branch libraries can effectively build community and contribute to student success.

FYXP 1500 - First Year Success Seminar
Designed to assist first-year students with their successful transition to the University of Colorado Boulder. Students will learn about campus resources, goal setting, study skills, and academic exploration. Participation in class discussions, self reflection, and engagement in course assignments are essential in this course. This course will provide a supportive environment for new students to engage with peers, staff, and faculty to support the first eight weeks of the transition to college.
