Adam manages the Japanese and Korean Collections at the University libraries. He teaches research skills in literature, history, language, and across many other disciplines as they relate to Japanese and Korean Studies. If you have students whose research skills you want to improve, you can email him to set up a session for your class. If you need an in depth discussion on supporting your research of Japan, Korea, or other matters, you can use his calendar to schedule a consultation. Adam also specializes in managing multilingual sources of information with the Juris-M software.
The University Libraries’ acquisition of books, journals, and a variety of media and electronic sources in Japanese and Korean are coordinated by Adam. Your suggestions for additional materials for our vernacular or English language collections are welcome any time. Adam earned his B.A. in Japanese studies at the University At Albany. After graduating, he participated in the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program (JET) for three years. He then returned to his alma mater pursuing his masters in Library and Information Science. His research areas include how scholarship is conducted in multilingual contexts as well as the intersection between information literacy and Japanese language education.
