Teaching: I'm on Administrative Leave/Sabbatical until June 2020 so am not doing any teaching in the 2019-20 academic year. Most recently I've taught LIS 9004 Research methods and Statistics; LIS 9005 Managing and Working in Information Organizations in the MLIS program and LIS 9801 Advanced Research Methods in the LIS PhD.

Supervision: I have supervisory status in Library and Information Science, Health Information Science, and Media Studies. You can see the theses I've supervised by selecting my name in the Supervisor drop-down here:

When I'm not on leave I also supervise MLIS guided research and individual study projects.

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.
