I am the French and Italian collections librarian, responsible for selecting new and old materials in all formats in these languages and about France, Italy, and areas using these languages. I work with students and faculty to help them find the materials that they need for their research. I also head up the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Group, which comprises the humanities and international areas studies librarians.
