Provides innovative instructional services including virtual reference, consultations, in-person classes, online subject guides, and other instructional materials in support of the data. Given the numerical data components of these disciplines, facility with data analysis tools, data management and other work related to data support will be important. Brings a strong understanding of the evolving digital scholarship trends and developments in higher education, particularly as applied to these fields with their particular data needs. This position also requires awareness of the challenges of collection development inherent in managing economics/business resources.

Participates in faculty meetings, as necessary, colloquia, and task forces as an integrated resource for the department.
