Outreach, Special Collections, Digital Projects
I am a professional librarian with advanced degrees in art history and library science, and extensive experience in reference/outreach for special collections and rare books.
I am fascinated by the history of collections and collectors, love tracing bibliographic clues to learn about a book’s provenance, and think that digital and analog collections are complementary and mutually beneficial. My current research project is on S. Fred Prince, who studied and illustrated the plants of the Ozarks in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
I shared some further thoughts on rare books with Fine Books & Collections in April 2014.
