Legal Literacy with Dr. David Michels (he/him)

Public Services Librarian, Sir James Dunn Law Library, Dalhousie University

I am passionate about connecting people with the right information so they can make sense of their world, whether that is academia, work, faith, or everyday life. I am an academic librarian, research instructor, and ethnographer of information behaviour in libraries and religious organizations. For over two decades I have served as a Law Librarian and Lecturer at Dalhousie University. Prior to that I served for a decade in church ministry. My Christian faith informs both my personal and professional practice.
