I am the Librarian for Art & Design and the Manager of the Arts Group. I work with the Stamps School of Art & Design to support their collection, research, learning and teaching needs, and run the Library's Book Arts Studio. 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 U-M 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 Ann Arbor District Library Board of Trustees.
I am also active in ARLIS/NA, the Art Libraries Society of North America, and was most recently the secretary of the ARLIS/NA Executive Board from 2015-2017.
