Personal Librarians

I'm the science and social science data librarian at the Center for Science and Social Science Information. At Yale, I work to help researchers find, acquire, and make use of research data across disciplines. If you want to know more about that, you can check out my research guides:

Data & statistics in the social sciences:
Science data resources:
Research data management:

You can also check out upcoming data resource workshops: http://bit.ly/yaledataworkshops

Feel free to email me and set up an appointment to talk about anything — data and statistics, general library issues, finding information, scholarly communication, where the best coffee is. I look forward to meeting you!

How can I help you?

I will:
  • Keep you informed with periodic e-mail messages highlighting new resources and programs especially for students, as well as notices and timely reminders, such as extended Library hours during Reading Week and finals
  • Answer your questionsd about Library policies, procedures and services, such as RefWorks workshops and Borrow Direct
  • Assist with finding information for your research assignments, by helping you articulate your research question, identify the best sources and formulate your search strategy
  • Support you even when you’re not around (on vacation, or away from Yale doing research)
  • Help you when you don’t know where to start, or you can’t think of what to do next

Things I don’t do (but I’ll help you find out who can)

I won’t:
  • Set up your computer (i.e. NetIDs, VPN)
  • Do your research, make photocopies or write your paper for you (well, I won't find someone to write your paper - that part's up to you - but I can put you in touch with The Writing Center or a writing tutor)”
