I have four years of experience working in McGill's academic library system in positions of varying responsibility. In addition to the strong theoretical background provided by my master's degree, I have practical, hands-on experience serving as a front-line resource for library users seeking specific information or resources for use in a wide variety of contexts.
I am extremely comfortable navigating library softwares, databases, and catalogs of all types. I love helping library users find the information they need.
