Statement of intents
You must be aware that consulting with a subject librarian is not only obtaining quality resources from an expert in any given subject, but also that you are knocking on the door of a local, national, and international group of professionals experts in multiple aspects of your possible projects. I mean that I am part of various international organizations: SALALM, LANE and LASER, (Latin America); CIFNAL (French and Francophone world); CRL (General Research) to which I have access and from which I obtain all the necessary support.

I am available to all students who are researching any Latin American, Iberian, Italian, Lusophone, Francophone, and French topics. Also, I have a lot of experience working with Global Issues from a Social Sciences and Humanities perspective and I can support research in German and Jewish Studies. If you are an undergraduate student that need to do a large or brief research project, or a graduate student preparing a bibliography for your PhD. or master’s degree, gathering ideas about a topic, finding an archive in a different country, etc., meeting with a subject librarian early in your research process is key saving you time and to improve the content of your research.

I am also very interested in hearing your opinion on how to improve our library. Let me know If you discover new material that may be useful for your research or have an opinion on how to improve our services and resources when you work on subject related to my expertise or elsewhere.
