Books & Brains: An exploration of early psychology and neuroanatomy texts
Books & Brains was an interactive event and digital exhibit curated by myself and Emma Sarconi, Reference Professional for Special Collections. The event featured items from Princeton University Library's Special Collections, Rare Books, and the Peter B. Lewis Library's limited access collection.
Baby Lab comes to the Cotsen Children's Library and Special Collections
"Nearly 20 Princeton University graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty, and staff from the Princeton Baby Lab visited Cotsen Children’s Library and Special Collections to learn more about Princeton University Library's educational programming for children and special collections in children's literature. The Baby Lab, a University research group led by the Department of Psychology, studies the early learning and development of children, inviting volunteer families and children to campus to examine how the children learn and how that learning ultimately supports the child's development."

[In progress] Princeton Brain Development Project + Meta-analysis
"The Princeton Brain Development project aims to model the number of brain connections during our life. Connections between brain cells are called synapses. Babies produce thousands of synapses per second. This leads to a peak in synapse density early in childhood. After this peak, the unused synapses are slowly eliminated again, which leads to a slow decline in synapse density that reaches a stable plateau during adulthood. Understanding the shape of this curve is important to understand diseases like autism and schizophrenia. The Princeton Brain Development project collects data from original research papers. We do not limit ourselves to data obtained from human brains, since most pre-clinical work is done in non-human species."
[Preprint] NIRO: Non-interventional, Reproducible, and Open Systematic Reviews

[In progress] How diverse are Princeton's psychology syllabi? A citation analysis
Citations from Spring and Fall 2020 syllabi will be examined for diverse authorship in order to establish a baseline for efforts to provide more inclusive, diverse, and reflective literature in psychology classes.
Change the Subject' Screening + Panel Discussion
Princeton University Library presented two screenings of the documentary, “Change the Subject" for library staff. The film shares the story of a resilient group of Dartmouth students who are committed to promoting the rights of undocumented people. Dartmouth staff, librarians, and students partnered to produce a film that captured their journey to confront the use of biased catalog subject headings, such as “illegal alien.”The film details how their campus activism led them to be a part of the immigration debate on Capitol Hill.
