Introduction

I have worked as a librarian at the UW Tacoma since 2003. My book Trying Home: The Rise and Fall of an Anarchist Colony on Puget Sound, published by Oregon State University Press, won the 2015 Washington State Book Award in the History/General Nonfiction Category. (For information about my work as an author, please visit my personal website or SelectedWorks page.)

I oversee digital projects, incuding UW Tacoma Digital Commons, manage the Media Collection, and serve as primary selector streaming media. My subject liaison areas include:
