Regina's role in the library

My work centers on facilitating the research process. I assist Stanford University students, faculty, staff and visiting scholars in the navigation and organization of information resources. I teach searching techniques that enable researchers to dig deeper into the invaluable collections held by Stanford University Libraries.  

My collection development responsibilities include the following subject areas:

  • Anthropology & Archaeology,
  • Communication & Journalism,
  • Feminist Studies,
  • Lusophone (Portuguese speaking) Africa,
  • Sociology,
  • Sports & Recreation

Within these subject areas, I serve as the primary liaison between the library and the aforementioned academic departments and programs. I provide in-person and online consultations as well as library tours and workshops. I design learner-centered workshops infused with course specific content. I invite faculty and teaching assistants to contact me to schedule a session.

I am interested in promoting, and participating in scholarly communications that enhance and innovate research.
