Researcher Support Librarian and Collection Development Program Lead Researcher Support Services
Role in the Library
As a member of the Researcher Support Services (RSS) group, Ellen is able to share ideas and supply support for researchers ranging from first year students to veteran campus faculty members. Her work as Program Lead of Collection Development allows her to assist in coordinating, in partnership with collection management and acquisitions colleagues, the growth and maintenance of the Library's physical and digital materials.
Though ready to look into any research needs through one-on-one Consultations or at the Research Tutoring Desk, Ellen's specialties match her areas of oversight within collection development: Communication, Film Production, History, Journalism, Music, Philosophy, Religion, and Theatre. Faculty in these areas in particular are encouraged to contact Ellen with collection, research, or related needs.
Ellen's role within Researcher Support Services also includes work as the Library's Open Educational Resources (OER) lead. Please see the OER Libguide for information on consultations as well do-it-yourself paths for all areas of OER and alternative learning materials.
Ellen is an instructor for some of the Savvy Researcher Workshops, including Wikipedia Editing and the Publishing Your Research sessions.
