I am the Director of Planning and Assessment for the University Libraries at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In this role, I work with all areas of the library to assess our impact on university outcome and determine ways that we can further the learning and research goals of UNLV. I was previously the Head of the Journalism Library at Columbia University. For my PhD in Higher Education (minor in Library Science), my dissertation studied the educational attainment of academic library deans. You can read more about me at:
