As a librarian in the Thomas P. O'Neill, Jr. Library at Boston College I have two roles.  I work in one capacity as Manager of Circulation Services and in another capacity as a bibliographer for Irish Studies.  Circulation Services is a division of the larger Access Services Department.  This department includes the Circulation Desk, stacks maintenance, Reserves Services, Interlibrary Loan and the Document Services Center.  The link below describes services and policies related to circulation services.

In my role as bibliographer for Irish Studies I serve the faculty, students, staff members and guests who are in any way involved with Irish Studies at Boston College.  Service to this community involves purchasing materials relevant to Irish Studies and research, providing instruction in the use of library resources and answering reference questions.  An important part of providing instruction is the creation of web pages that serve as research guides for major subject areas in Irish Studies.  The photo above is a picture of Connolly House, the home of Irish Studies and Irish Programs at Boston College.The links below are samples of such guides that my colleague Beth Sweeney and I developed.
