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.
I am an adjunct instructor at Clarion University. I have taught Business Reference and Resources, as well as Cataloging and Adult Services Programming.
Beyond this, I have taught many 2 and 4-week classes to other librarians on community engagement, reference, and business services.
