A bit about me: I am a classically trained musician and hold bachelors and masters degrees in performance, along with a masters degree in music history. My research areas are: American film, television, and radio music from 1930-1960;  Bollywood film music; music and politics (specifically Irish rebellion music); and music and religion (specifically non-Christian music). After many years of music study and performance, I completed a masters degree in Library and Information Science and joined the staff of SVSU in 2015! From 2015-2021, I was the Metadata/Catalog Librarian. From 2021-2022, I was Interim Head of Access Services. In May 2022, I became the permanent Head of Access Services.
