My CV  

Research Interests:

  • Children’s and Young Adult literature: Developing library collections in various genres for a diverse audience of young readers; encouraging reluctant readers

  • Bibliotherapy

    International library collaborations: From 2005-2008, I was part of an international exchange between WKU-SEK Collegi Catalunya, Spain, to help develop English language school library and classroom collections.
  • Librarians as teachers: Collaboration and research projects in K-12 and postsecondary educational environments
  • Developing and implementing methods of promoting library services and collections to the community. For example, email newsletters, exhibits and displays, library blogs, etc.
  • Bibliotherapy/reading guidance: Librarians’ roles in helping young readers cope with emotional situations by identifying with characters and situations in children’s and young adult literature.
