Hi! As Librarian of Electronic Reserves, I oversee a 24/7 virtual library service which supports over 660 courses (English, Hebrew, and others) for required reading assignments. The 12K+ items in the associated Springshare database include a variety of resources: Links to journal articles, chapters in e-books and multi-media. I collaborate with both faculty and students to ensure that assignments are posted in a timely fashion, passwords are established and publicized, and books and media are recommended for purchase.
As a founding member of the Institutional Repository Task Group I serve as Librarian of Scholarly Communications. My primary task is to identify published work by faculty and promote the sharing of that work to the Yeshiva University repository, YAIR (Yeshiva Academic Institutional Repository). Some student work is also included, among it student journals, theses and dissertations.
As Personal Librarian I guide honors students in their research of their theses. Guidance includes introduction to databases, bibliographic citation and effective use of library materials.
As a member of the YU Student Library Research Award. committee, I evaluate student papers on their skillfulness of both writing and use of library materials. Reading student research greatly enhances my understanding of student methods of research, perception of library resources, and of course, personal academic interests.
As an academic librarian with over 32 years of experience, I provide pro bono mentoring service to new librarians and library students through the American Library Association's New Member Roundtable and the Association of College and Research Libraries New York Chapter.
I look forward to getting to know you and facilitating your research experience. Please contact me to schedule an appointment.
