About Joseph

About Joseph
As a librarian I provide research assistance to students and faculty at a university. I connect information seekers to credible sources they can use in their academic work, and while doing so help them to be more self-sufficient finders, users, and creators of information. I have provided research assistance in multiple modes - including chat text, email, Skype, and telephone.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I design and deliver course-based information literacy instruction sessions for undergraduate and graduate students at a university. I also provide library reference service, during which I bring my instructional mindset to one-on-one interactions with library users.
