Janis is Wallace Library’s Collections Librarian. As part of the Discovery & Access team, she connects the Wheaton community to scholarly resources that support teaching and learning. She works to implement a holistic collections strategy that balances print and electronic collections, monographs and continuing resources (i.e. subscriptions), course reserves, open educational resources, and Wheaton’s unique digital collections in a community that prioritizes inclusion, belonging, and accessibility.

An amateur bird watcher, she wholeheartedly thinks the North American wild turkey should be our national bird– respected and appreciated and never eaten.
