I am the Librarian for Art & Design and the Head of the Arts Group at the University of Michigan Library. I work with the Stamps School of Art & Design to support their collection, research, learning and teaching needs. I curate artists' books for the Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library's Special Collections and the Special Collections Research Center and develop book arts programming and run the Library's Book Arts Studio. I am also the manager of the Arts Group within the Research division of the Library.
I have a Master's degree from the U-M School of Information, and I received a BA in Art History with a minor in Italian Studies from Wellesley College. Since arriving in Ann Arbor in 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.
