I am the Student Success Librarian at the Purchase College Library. I work with other student success units on campus to improve the student experience, and work toward success, retention, and graduation goals. I am also a subject librarian, which means that I oversee collection development, reference, and library instruction for biology, chemistry, environmental studies, history, & liberal studies.
