Librarian for Art & Design, Learning Librarian, and Exhibits and Programming Librarian

About

I am the interim Librarian for Art & Design as well as a Learning Librarian and Exhibits & Programming Librarian. I work with the Stamps School of Art & Design to support their collection, research, learning and teaching needs. I also develop and coordinate exhibits and programs, teach classes on Library resources, and provide reference service both in person and online (if you Ask a Librarian, you might get me!). I am involved in digital signage governance on campus, and I chair the Library's Exhibits and Programming Group.

Background

Previously, I was the Programming Coordinator for the University's North Quad building, an internationally-themed academic and residential complex. Prior to that, I was the Curatorial Research Center Librarian at UMMA and a University Library Associate at the Art, Architecture and Engineering Library.

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