About Steve

As the UNCG Business Librarian & Research Consultant, my role is to support the research needs of students and the research and teaching needs faculty in Bryan School classes and any other classes working with company, industry, market, nonproft, etc. research. Each year I answer over 700 research questions, and teach or guest-teach dozens of active-learning research workshops. Please let me know what I can do to help you!


I began working in Jackson Library in April 2001, and was awarded tenure in 2007. I'm co-founder of Business Librarianship in North Carolina (BLINC), a member of ALA's BRASS, and a Carolina Consortium negotiator.

I co-teach MKT 426: International Marketing (the "Export Odyssey" class) and ENT 300: Feasibility Analysis.

I came to UNCG from Duke University, where I was the Digital Services Librarian and business specialist in Perkins Library. Before that, I was a librarian at Davenport College (now University) of Business in Holland, Michigan. I earned a BA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies from the University of Michigan in 1991, and a Master's degree in Library and Information Science from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in 1994.
