1. Information Literacy, Information Credibility, and the Appropriate Use of Information, and Assessment of Learning in These Areas.
  2. I am a member of two American Library Association (ALA) groups specializing in library instruction; have developed newinstructional resources supporting the development of knowledge and skills in information literacy, evaluating the credibility of information sources, and using information appropriately; and have shared these materials and strategies with colleagues at the campus, library system, and state and national levels.
  3. Information Access and Trends in Scholarly Publication.
  4. I am interested in trends in scholarly publication and information dissemination in various science/technology disciplines in order to better evaluate collection development options and to provide improved service to my academic liaison units, and to students in instructional and reference settings. I chair an Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) committee involved with information access. I am a member of the IUPUI Repository Advisory Group. A co-author and I are planning to write an article on scholarly repositories.
