Richard's chief mission as a reference and instructional librarian is helping students and faculty do research. This help consists of regular hours at the reference desk, choosing titles for Celtic Studies, English, and German, teaching students to find and evaluate print and web resources, assisting faculty with their Blackboard course sites, and creating and updating research guides and online tutorials. Richard is also liaison librarian for the Celtic Studies Programme and the German Department. He works on a team of Public Services staff at the library.As an undergraduate, Richard worked at the Carleton University MacOdrum Library in Ottawa. He liked it so much that after receiving journalism and English degrees at Carleton University, Richard obtained his library qualification at the University of Toronto (MISt, 2004). Richard gained more experience at the Data, Map, Government and Information Services Library (UofT), the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library (UofT), and the City of Toronto Archives. He joined the Kelly Library in 2004.
