What does it mean to be a Data Services Librarian?
“I’m here to connect Berkeley social science researchers with quantitative and qualitative data resources that the Library provides for the academic community. Behind the scenes, I coordinate with campus partners to build relationships and programs to help support and advance the role of data in teaching, learning and scholarship.”

How do you help Berkeley faculty?
“I help faculty and their students navigate and utilize data collections and technology effectively through assignments, teaching modules and research consultations. For faculty seeking grant-funding, I am available to consult on data management and data sharing plans.”

Tell us about one thing you would like faculty to know.
Did you know that the library purchases datasets for you and your students? Through the Data Acquisition and Access Program (DAAP), Berkeley researchers can submit requests for datasets to be purchased and made available by the library.
