As the Biology Librarian in the Robin Li and Melissa Ma Science Library, I assist members of the Stanford community in finding and using information in the life sciences.  I also offer workshops in using databases and other sources to find journal articles and other digital and printed information in biology.  I select journals, books, media, and other information resources in the life sciences for Stanford's collections and I welcome suggestions for purchase.
