Michael's role in the library

As the Head Librarian at Falconer Biology Library, I assist members of the Stanford community in finding and using information in the life sciences.  I also offer workshops in using databases and other sources to find journal articles and other digital and printed information in biology.  I select journals, books, media, and other information resources in the life sciences for Stanford's collections and I welcome suggestions for purchase.

Professional activities

I am an active member of the Medical Library Association and its Molecular Biology and Genomics Special Interest Group.
