Dave is a reference librarian at Lilly Library in the evenings, and also has been known to work on the reference desks in Perkins and the Divinity School libraries. He helps students with research, is interested in thinking across disciplines when searching a topic, and enjoys teaching library research instruction sessions on many topics.

Originally from NC, Dave worked previously at Cornell University and loved the summers in upstate NY, but also learned to love Florida winters. This means Dave has gardened in climate zones 5–8, 10 and 11! North Carolina is actually on the cusp of that temperate coolness and tropical warmth, so he enjoys taking road trips to escape the heat and the cold on his breaks.
