Access Services Supervisor State Library of Pennsylvania Qualifications: Ph.D. (University of Chicago, 1991), Early Modern European History M.S. (Drexel University, 1996), Library Science Experience: I completed a doctoral dissertation at the University of Chicago on the biblical hermeneutic of the Swiss Protestant reformer Huldrych Zwingli in 1991. Subsequently, I published several research articles on Zwingli’s hermeneutical and homiletical practices, as well as his collaboration with Zurich publisher Christopher Froschauer to produce the Zurich Bible. I also contributed the entry on “Ulrich Zwingli” for the Dictionary of Major Biblical Interpreters (IV Press, 2007). From 1998-2004 I edited the Journal of Religious & Theological Information (Volumes 3-6) for the Haworth Press in which I published several research articles and numerous book reviews. Among those publications was an annotated bibliography of “Core Resources for a Program in Diaconal Ministry” that I co-wrote with the late Bonnie VanDelinder, Library Director of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. In addition to my work in academic and special libraries I have taught European history as an adjunct instructor at colleges and universities in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
