Architecture, Urban Planning, and Visual Resources Librarian and Liaison for Museum Studies

About

As subject specialist for Architecture and Urban Planning, I am the library liaison to the Taubman College of Architecture & Urban Planning. I support their curriculum and investigations by selecting materials (print, image and electronic) for teaching and research. I am also liaison for the Museum Studies certificate program.  As Visual Resources Librarian I supervise the operation of Imageworks, our visual resources collection on the 2nd floor of the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library, and manage digital image resources provided by the Library for the entire campus. In addition, I manage our new Materials Collection, located on the 2nd floor of AAEL.

Background

I joined the staff of the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library in September, 1998. My background is in architectural history, beginning with a master's degree in Architectural History from the University of Virginia School of Architecture. Before earning a masters in Information Science here at the University of Michigan, I received a PhD in the History of Art with a focus on medieval architecture. I am particularly interested in the meanings of architectural form and space.

Responsibilities

I work closely with Annette Haines, our Art & Design librarian and with Deirdre Spencer, our History of Art librarian. In addition I work with NIcole Scholtz and Karl Longstreth in the Clark Library and SAND North.
