Rob Walsh

Social Sciences Librarian

Introduction

I'm Rob. I'm the Social Sciences Librarian. This means I collaborate with students and faculty at all stages of the research process. Students, we can talk about everything research-related, from getting started with an assignment to citing sources. Faculty, I can help develop assignments that incorporate academic research in meaningful and engaging ways.

While my primary focus is research methods and critical thinking, I also have a background in popular culture (especially comix, zines, hip hop, and punk rock), subcultures, and critical race theory. Additionally, I am trained in quantitative and qualitative research design.
