About me

After receiving my Masters in Library and Information Studies, I was the E. Ph. Goldschmidt Fellow at Rare Book School at the University of Virginia. I began my library career at the University of California, San Diego, first as Special Collections Cataloger then as Head of Technical Services for Special Collections and the Classical Studies Bibliographer for the Social Sciences and Humanities Library. I returned to the University of Minnesota and worked with the range of collections in Special Collections, Rare Books, and Manuscripts in addition to my service to the Charles Babbage Institute and as Electronic Records Coordinator.
