About Me

My name is Topher (short for Christopher) Lawton, and I’m the reference librarian for the College of Science! I'm in the science buildings fairly often, so please say hi if you see me!

As Science Librarian, I provide reference and instruction services to the communities focusing on Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, and Ocean, Earth, & Atmospheric Sciences. More generally, I work to increase information literacy across the Old Dominion University campus. I’m happy to consult on Research Data Management, as well.

My background is interdisciplinary, and includes some undergraduate work in biology (primarily in taxonomy and cladistics). My graduate work focused in data visualization/information design & architecture.
