Hello! I am the Instructional Services Librarian here at TML and currently serving as Library Co-Director (Interim). I help students perform research for course assignments and manage the Library's Information Literacy Program. I also create displays, develop programming, and help maintain our online presence. Follow us on IG and FB to learn more about our services and see what's happening at TML!

CU librarians can help students with:
Developing search strategies, understanding the information ecosystem within your major/field, refining a research topic, recommendations on where to search, strategies for reading (and understanding) scholarly articles, strategies for keeping track of your sources, helpful tips for successfully using library databases, how to find out if we have a source, finding full text, how to search for and recognize particular types of sources (e.g. peer-reviewed articles, original research articles, primary sources, etc.)

CU librarians can support faculty with the following:
  • Providing library research instruction sessions tailored to your course
  • One-on-one student research consultations
  • Assistance with identifying affordable course materials, including library resources and Open Educational Resources
  • Purchasing or licensing print/digital materials in support of the curriculum
