I hope that my contributions as an editor will strengthen the list's mission to foster lively, informative, peered discussion and debate. My main objective is to strengthen what I consider to be H-histbibl’s main asset, namely its clear and specific focus on history library services, while reaching out across disciplines (especially history, digital humanities, library science, archival management) to enhance the list’s content. The list functions well as a source of information for professionals in the field and I would like to encourage subscribers to participate more often in discussions around issues of interest to the profession.

My field qualifications for this service are based on my experience in library services supporting the study and teaching of history, especially instruction and collection development. I am currently the history liaison at Oakland University's Kresge Library. I have a doctorate in American history and a Master’s degree in Information Science, specializing in library science and archival management. I have been working as reference and instruction librarian since 2009, and before that worked as Professor of American studies at the University of Tours (France).
In 2011 I presented a paper at the meeting of the American Historical Association on the need for stronger partnerships between librarians and history instructors to develop students’ research skills, and an article based on this presentation was published in the History Teacher in February 2012. My other research interests are the history of immigration and ethnic archives. Furthermore I keep informed about major developments and trends in history, digital humanities, librarianship and archives, and I posted news items on H-histbibl for over a year before becoming editor.
