What I do...

As an Information Services Librarian, Ross assists WCM-Q faculty, staff, and students with day-to-day information enquiries, and conducts instructional sessions in the use of DeLib resources, online searching, and the use of bibliographic management software. He is also the liaison librarian for the Research Faculty. Behind the scenes, Ross also co-ordinates DeLib’s Citation Service, production of various DeLib publications, e.g. DeLib Bytes, and serves on the editorial board of “Perspectives in International Librarianship”. He is currently working with other DeLib staff to establish an institutional repository of publications by WCM-Q faculty.
