Presentations

I actively pursue opportunities to present my research to local, regional, national, and international audiences. The Association for Library and Information Science Education serves as my intellectual home and key conference venue. I have also delivered multiple presentations at The Catholic University of America and the Maryland Library Association and Delaware Library Association Joint Conference. I also share my specialized expertise through speaking engagements, and have been invited to serve on panels and present at workshops.

Please contact me if you are interested in inviting me to serve on a panel, speak to members of your organization, or collaborate on a presentation.
