As the subject librarian for Psychology and Neuroscience, I am the liaison to this department as well as the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS). I select all types of materials - databases, e-journals, print materials - to support the curriculum and research needs of the P&N faculty and students. I also offer library instruction for undergraduate and graduate classes (also via Sakai), one-on-one research consultations, reference services, and Zotero workshops.
