I serve faculty, staff and students in the departments of Chemistry, Physics & Astronomy, Mathematics, and Statistics. My library background consists of a university medical library, NASA information center, BWI (children’s book wholesaler), Lexmark, the University of Kentucky Chemistry/Physics Library and now Science and Engineering Library at the University of Kentucky.  All of this to say my past involves searching for information in a vast array of subjects and for people from a number of backgrounds.  Feel free to contact me with any of your information needs.  You can email me or
