As the Business & Entrepreneurship Librarian, I am the liaison to the Rutgers Business School, Master of Business and Science program, Information Technology & Informatics program (including the specialization in Game Production), and University Career Services. In addition to supporting the faculty, students, and staff in my liaison areas, I seek opportunities to collaborate with and support business and entrepreneurship programs/initiatives across the Rutgers University-New Brunswick campus. My research interests include entrepreneurship services/spaces in libraries (including research commercialization support), emerging technologies (with a specific interest in the Internet of Things), library marketing/promotion, and business information literacy.
