Biography

I joined the library faculty in 1983 as Assistant Professor and Bibliographer for the Humanities. In 1989, I was promoted to Associate Professor. I earned a Ph.D. in comparative literature and my MLS from Indiana University at Bloomington.

 

Research

Most of my research has been about the use of libraries and information by humanities scholars as indicated through citation studies of various humanities disciplines, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, the fine arts, philosophy, and linguistics.  I also co-authored a study of small press publications.

Currently, I am involved with other members of the Collections Development Department with broader disciplinary studies as well as mentoring junior faculty through co-authorship of research articles.

 

Librarianship

As Bibliographer for the Humanities, I select print and electronic resources that support teaching and research at UIC in the following fields: English, Philosophy, the Performing Arts, Communication, Classics and Mediterranean Studies, Germanic Cultural Studies, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese, the Slavic and Baltic Languages and Literatures, Dance, as well as the humanistic sides of interdisciplinary or area studies programs and home economics.  I am also liaison with teaching faculty in these departments and provide bibliographic instruction upon request of the instructor.

 

Campus and Professional Service

I have served UIC and the library profession in several capacities. Currently, I am chair of the Senate External Relations and Public Service Committee and of the Honorary Degree Nominating Committee. I am a member of the Advisory Board of the journal Design Issues and a former Book Review Editor for that journal. I have translated numerous articles for them from French, Italian, German, and Spanish. I have been active in two sections of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) of the American Library Association (ALA), the West European Studies Section (WESS) since 1985, as secretary and chair, and the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section (RBMS) since 1998, as secretary.
