Deb is a doctoral research librarian, working with the University-wide PhD program in Leadership and Change since its inception. For twenty years Deb directed the library at Antioch University New England, a library which specialized in graduate support for masters and doctoral students in social and natural sciences.
Deb believes that successful doctoral low-residency library support must be both PERSONALIZED and PROACTIVE. Deb’s goal is to be present for her students from the first day of class until they walk across the platform to get their degree. Deb understands her role with the self-directed learner in the patron-centered library as both teacher and guide. Attending every residency, Deb offer students face-to-face and online consultation, in real-time and asynchronous, throughout their program, while teaching doctoral library research skills which will carry into professional and academic work. Deb is strongly committed to supporting the success of all her doctoral students.
In all of Deb’s professional work she supports the values of Antioch University in its mission to empower the Antioch community to become local and global leaders, contributing to the improvement of the human condition and the good stewardship of the planet Earth.
