Position title
Conservation Specialist


In my role as Conservation Specialist at the Libraries, I focus on continued access and preservation of our Special Collections physical materials. Informed by my background in historical bookbinding, book arts, and book & paper conservation, I am able to perform condition assessments and conservation treatment to prolong the lives of our materials for future users. I love to work with my hands and enjoy sharing my love of good craftsmanship through training students here at the U and teaching the ocassional class at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
