How can I support you?

How I can support your research projects:

  • Research appointments: via Zoom (in-person appointments currently unavailable due to pandemic). I can work with you to:
    • develop your research question and assess whether your project is feasible;
    • identify and navigate relevant information resources and research tools;
    • evaluate and interpret the information you find;
    • access materials beyond UNC, including from institutions abroad.

How I can support instructors:

  • Library workshops for your students, tailored to your assignments (via Zoom: in-person workshops currently unavailable due to pandemic). Students will get to practice:
    • developing a research question;
    • getting started with a research project;
    • choosing the right databases and other research tools;
    • finding and evaluating primary and secondary sources.
  • Individual or group appointments for your students to support them through the research project.

Special skills: foreign languages

  • I can work with you to navigate sources in Russian, Ukrainian, Czech, Slovak, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Polish, to a much lesser degree, French, and, in a pinch, Hungarian.
  • I can work with you on Russian grammar and conversation practice.

Please feel free to book appointments with me as many times and as often as needed!
