I am Washington and Lee's Humanities librarian and the liaison to all the departments and programs in the humanities. Please see the list in the right hand column for details. I help students and faculty with their research, and teach classes in research methods and skills. For each class I teach I create an online Research Guide filled with suggestions ranging from finding materials, evaluating sources, citing sources, plagiarism, etc. 

As the liaison, I maintain contact with the faculty and assist them in their research and projects in the digital humanities. Other responsibilities include collection development (buying books, journals, videos, CDs, databases) in the humanities disciplines.

Request a Course Guide / Class Presentation / Library Tour


Students often encounter obstacles during their research. To help the student understand how to navigate our homepage and discover our resources, I can

  • visit your class and present a research guide on the topic of the course.
  • create an online research guide without coming to your class.

Please fill out this form.

Here is an example of a course guide: ARTH 240 - Arts of China

Note: I also give library tours to familiarize students with the library and its services.


Exhibit Ideas?

As the coordinator of exhibits in Leyburn Library, I am always looking for new ideas and/or participation. Please contact me with topics you'd like to see highlighted in our exhibits. They can be related to academic life, student life, athletics, celebrations, etc.
