Dear Allyson,

Please let me know how I can help. The need is critical. 

On a related note, I have been collecting data about LIS faculty vacancies for several years and could share some data if that would be helpful.

Count me in to help with doctoral dissertations in bibliographic control areas.

Cordially,
Sylvia
