I support the research needs of School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences (SE3) through materials collection and research support for the school's departments and their related labs and research groups. As the Earth & Environmental Sciences Librarian, I work with faculty and students to provide instructional support for SE3 undergraduate and graduate courses and to assist research through consultations on various topics at the Branner Earth Sciences Library. In addition, I purchase books, journals, online databases and other resources by request for students and faculty.
