Current Role at Stanford
I develop and maintain Stanford University Libraries collections of current, rare, and antiquarian materials in all formats in French and Italian languages in all areas of research, and about France, its colonies, and Italy in all languages. I provide bibliographical reference support and instruction on French and Italian subjects to faculty and students at all levels. In conjunction with faculty members, students, and colleagues, I participate in the planning and execution of projects such a digitization, exhibits, and programing, using materials in the French and Italian collections, .
I also lead the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Group, the team of humanities and foreign language librarians at Stanford University Libraries.
