I am the new Science Librarian at Georgia State University, 
responsible for Biology, Neuroscience and Computer Science. 
I wanted to introduce myself and share a little of my 
background. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree from 
the University of Alberta with a major in Zoology. I spent a 
dozen years working in Indianapolis as an elephant trainer 
collaborating with researchers around the world.

As the Biology, Neuroscience and Computer Science Librarian 
at Georgia State I offer:

· Instruction sessions and research guides: In order for 
students to become more familiar with the library resources 
available to them and to assist them in completing 
assignments at a higher level, I offer instruction on 
information literacy, research guides and research tools. 
The instruction sessions can be an introduction to library 
resources, subject specific, or assignment specific. These 
sessions may be set up by emailing me directly or by 
competing the “request a class” form 

· Research assistance: I will be offering office hours at 
which time I will be available to students for in-depth 
personal assistance with their assignments. I am also 
available to collaborate with the biology and neuroscience 
faculty with their research.

· Collection development: One of my tasks as a Science 
Librarian is to purchase resources, books and DVD’s, in 
biology and neuroscience to provide a well-rounded 
collection that supports the teaching and research at 
Georgia State University. I am open to suggestions in order 
to make the collection stronger, other requests will be 
noted in the event that funding becomes available. Feel free 
to send me requests for the purchase of specific items.

· Instruction for faculty and graduate students: I will be 
offering classes designed to introduce faculty and graduate 
students to resources that may be new to them. Classes on 
existing resources will also be offered to demonstrate 
shortcuts and to show new means to using the resources.

I look forward to working with all of you.
