Please consult the Librarians by Subject Area listing for interim liaison contact information.
Rebecca's research currently focuses on information literacy, particularly in the sciences. She's especially interested in how students learn to distinguish appropriate sources in complex, interdisciplinary contexts. Another strand of her research focuses on the library's role in informal scientific learning and the role of library spaces in embodying scientific literature. Finally, she's very interested in library outreach targeting retention, especially at the sophomore level, which aligns with current trends and interests in higher education.
