Specifically, I teach research instruction sessions for several Spanish courses, design related online subject and course guides, process incoming Spanish and Portuguese book shipments, communicate with international book vendors, and occasionally curate book exhibits. As Program Assistant for International Collections, I manage the service desk which provides reference and research services about international topics to KU students and the public.
