Sara Davidson - Head, Research & Learning Services: Home

What does Sara really do?

Day to day you will find me coordinating our instruction sessions for classes, teaching library research skills, answering research questions, communicating library services, and leading the web team.  In a nutshell, I oversee our reference and instructional services in order to support student learning and faculty research.

I also have the opportunity to participate in campus groups and activities including the Campus Working Group on Assessment (CWGA), the Writing Center pilot, and summer orientations. 

My favorite part of the job is interacting with students and working with great colleagues.  There is also a lot of variety in my position which I enjoy.  As a librarian I am also learning something new.
