Catherine Shreve is the library liaison to the Sanford School of Public Policy, the Political Science Department, and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions. She has worked at Perkins Library since 1996, starting as the International Documents librarian. Her focus is on helping researchers find sources--through individual research consultations, research guides she creates, and library instruction for specific courses.  Because public policy touches on most fields, Catherine has a lot of experience answering interdisciplinary questions.
