The APA Databases & Electronic Resources Customer Relations team is growing! Dawn Harper, MSLIS, joined the team in April 2016 as the APA Style Documentation and Training Specialist.
Prior to joining APA, she was a Distance and Instruction Librarian at Nova Southeastern University, where she managed online workshops and e-learning for the library. In addition, she worked with the Colleges of Business, Education, and Psychology to provide instruction in information literacy and research using subject-specific resources. In previous positions, Dawn worked with copyright and scholarly communications at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, and provided reference and instructional services at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, Massachusetts.
She has an MS in Library and Information Science from Simmons College and a BA in Media Arts and Design from James Madison University.
Dawn’s role at APA will focus mainly on training for APA Style CENTRAL™, and she will join the other training specialists in providing webinars, print and online training materials, and conducting in-person training sessions. Her experience working with students, faculty, staff, and librarians and APA Style® will ensure training materials are as useful and relevant as possible.
