Liaison Librarian Supports English Teaching and Research

A new English librarian will join the University of Houston Libraries in March, cultivating excellence in collaboration with UH faculty and increasing awareness and usage of library resources and services for students.

As the world of research grows increasingly complex, the librarian’s role in helping students navigate through the maze of print and electronic resources is essential in shaping the path for academic success. Jesse Sharpe will provide teaching and research support for scholars in the UH department of English, bringing expertise in effective search techniques and the delivery of information literacy instruction.

“We are excited to bring Jesse on board,” said Christina Gola, Head of Liaison Services for Instruction and Outreach, and Miranda Bennett, Head of Liaison Services for Collections and Research Support. “He has a strong background in English literature and information literacy, as well as experience providing library services to undergraduates, graduates, and faculty. With his impressive record of scholarship, including work on several digital humanities projects, he will be a great addition to the Liaison Services team.”

Sharpe joins UH Libraries from the University of Bridgeport Magnus Walhstrom Library.
