I am the E-Learning Librarian in the Reference and Instruction Department of Baylor University Libraries. This means in addition to providing reference and instruction services to students and faculty at Baylor, I also design and create online instructional materials. I also investigate ways that new generations of students are using the internet and how that can be connected with the online resources the library provides. I am personally interested in how libraries can be represented in course management systems like Blackboard, the instructional uses of Facebook and other social networking sites and how libraries can use and adapt Web 2.0 tools to help facilitate easier access to online resources.
For 7 years, I worked as a campus minister with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students. During that time, I was sent by InterVarsity overseas twice – to work with Studentski evandjeoski pokret in Croatia and Evandjeosko udruzenje studenata – FBiH in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. While in Sarajevo, I taught English, ran a small library, helped direct conferences, supported the national staff with things like strategic planning and fundraising and drank a lot of coffee with students.
I love music of all kinds, going to concerts, playing the guitar, reading good fiction and history, watching sci-fi television, being crafty, learning languages, web-design, photography and travel. I also love anything to do with Bosnia and the former Yugoslavia.
