Teaching: In the MLIS program I have mainly taught required courses: most recently LIS 9004 Research methods and statistics, and LIS 9005 Managing and Working in Information Organizations. In the LIS doctoral program I have taught LIS 9801 Advanced Research Methods and LIS 9871 Knowledge Practices in Scholarly and Professional Communities.

Supervision: I regularly supervise directed study courses for thesis students, MLIS guided research and individual study projects. I'm happy to meet with students to talk about those options.

I have supervised or co-supervised thesis and/or MRP students in Library and Information Science, Media Studies, and Health Information Science. You can see the theses I've supervised by selecting my name in the Supervisor drop-down here:

Research: I have two active research projects at the moment. The first is a study of everyday recordkeeping: how people "keep track" of things in their lives. This study was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. I'm embarking on a new a pilot study of how people value public libraries, and I hope to expand this into a larger project during my 2019-20 sabbatical.
