My expertise and background are in health informatics, health information and health sciences librarianship. Before coming to IUPUI in 2004, I was an academic health sciences librarian at the University of Pittsburgh and Boston University Medical Center for many years, where I specialized in information literacy and information management, served as a webmaster for 11 years, and developed information-focused curricula and programming with the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Public Health, Nursing (Pitt), Pharmacy (Pitt), and others.
