Ray's role in the library
I oversee all aspects of public service for Music including reference, circulation, instruction, and facilities. I assist patrons in finding and using music research resources, provide tours, mount exhibits, and serve as webmaster and primary blogger. In addition, I assist in developing the SUL web presence through the Online Experience Group.

More about Ray
I was born and raised in the lower Hudson Valley of New York State. My undergraduate major was in music history and violoncello. My music master's degree focused on music iconography (specifically, William Hogarth's London), and library reference services. In my leisure time I enjoy cooking and food culture, playing the piano, and figure drawing.
