Collection Development Librarian
I am responsible for guiding and coordinating collection development efforts in the library and work closely with the Acquisitions Librarian and Acquisitions staff to implement material orders. I also oversee the government documents collection and maintain the government information section of the library's web page. I continue to take part in reference desk service, research appointments, and library instruction. I serve as liaison to the following departments: Economics; Government. Finally, I am the collector of all donations to the library (books and videos - no magazines or journals, please!).
