I have worked in the library field for nearly 20 years and am currently the Library Director and Principal Lecturer III at The University of New Mexico-Valencia Campus. I have worked in every area (technical services, public services, reference and administration) and position (technician, specialist, Librarian, Associate Director and Director) in an academic library. I have taught Library Instruction sessions in a wide range of topics as well face-to-face, for-credit instruction in the area of Research Methods. My Research interests, publications and presentations have included Library User Satisfaction, Internet Research, Copyright and Fair Use and Emerging Information Technologies. I am a wife, mother and grandmother and enjoy volunteer work, reading, watching movies, working as background in television and movies, fishing, hunting, hiking and spending time with my family.
