Hi there! My name is Barbara and I have worked in libraries for seven years and have won national awards, as well as written a book about providing the best reference to students. I love helping people get the answers they need and will work with you to make sure that you feel confident in the resources and information that you access. I am currently studying to get my PhD in Library and Information Science.
