Librarian for Art & Design


I am the Librarian for Art & Design. I work with the Stamps School of Art & Design to support their collection, research, learning and teaching needs. I purchase artists' books for the Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library's Special Collections and develop book arts programming to complement this collection. I am also the liaison to the larger art and design communities in Ann Arbor and the surrounding area.

Contact me for help with:

  • research in art and design
  • questions about or requests to use our Artists' Books Collection or Book Arts Studio
  • ideas for collaborative projects, programming, and events related to art and design
  • data management planning consultation and organizational needs for art and design


I have a tailored Master's degree from the UM School of Information in Art and Art Museum Librarianship, and I received a BA in Art History with a minor in Italian Studies from Wellesley College.
 Since arriving in Ann Arbor in June of 2005, I have been active in the local art and book communities. I have served on the boards of the Kerrytown BookFest and the Ann Arbor Book Festival, and I am currently on the board of the Ann Arbor District Library.

I am also active in ARLIS/NA, the Art Libraries Society of North America. Currently I'm the secretary of the ARLIS/NA Executive Board.
