A member of both the Library and the College of Theology & Ministry (COTM) faculties, my primary responsibility is the development of the theological collection, selecting the books, journals, and databases that support the academic programs and research of the COTM, both graduate and undergraduate. Other responsibilities include library instruction, especially for theology courses, and reference duties during individual research consultations by appointment or scheduled hours at the Reference Desk. I also write library reports and gather the statistics for the annual library surveys required by the government or by accrediting agencies. What has given me the greatest satisfaction in working in the ORU Library over the past 22 years is connecting with students and helping them with their research. What joy when the Holy Spirit inspires just the right word or phrase to search to bring up the articles and books the students need!
