Molly's role in the library

I serve at the Information Center reference desk and particularly enjoy Slavic reference. I  provide library instruction, especially to PWR classes. I have written topic guides for food - including politics and food, human rights, and humanitarian intervention. I also manage our extensive newspaper collection. We have more than 150 current titles in the Information Center. The Stanford University Libraries hold nearly 6,000 titles in over 50 different languages, including many available online.
