I've been at WSU since 1976. Before coming to WSU, I was a science librarian at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for 5 years.  My undergraduate major was biology (1970). I received my MSLS at the University of Illinois (now UIUC) in 1971, with a specialization in medical librarianship, as part of the US Public Health Service Training Program for Medical Librarians.
