Academic Appointments


I am interested in the bibliography of Canadian labour studies and with my colleague, Dan Scott, produce the Labour Studies Index, an open access index first published in 2015. Previously, I was editor of CAML Review, published by the Canadian Association of Music Libraries, Archvies and Documentation Centres (CAML). I have written on the bibliography of film music, The Encyclopedia of Music Canada, and the development of bibliographic expertise in gerontology, as well as over 120 book reviews. 




I teach classes on library resources and research for the Faculty of Arts as well as classes on Zotero for citation and bibliography.
