More about me 

I've worked at Ohio State University, Alfred University, and came to Stanford in 1988 to work in Meyer Library when it was an undergraduate library.  I also worked in Green Library for a number of years first in General Reference and then later in the Information Center (six years as its head) before coming to Cubberley in 2006.
