Service

In my work, research, teaching and service are densely inter-woven. This work is hands-on, and involves working closely with partners on- and off-campus. A central project has been the eBlack Champaign-Urbana Project, which I have directed since 2009. Other projects have served community groups and public libraries, both in Champaign-Urbana and across the State of Illinois. I also serve the library & information science professions by working with local, regional, and national professional organizations.
