Rebecca Mary Price
Architecture, Urban Planning, and Visual Resources Librarian and Liaison for Museum Studies
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, investigations and creative output by selecting materials (print, image and electronic) for teaching and research. As Visual Resources Librarian, I supervise the acquisition and processing of image collections and manage digital image resources provided by the Library. In addition, I manage the Materials Collection in AAEL. I am also liaison for the Museum Studies certificate program and select materials to build our AAEL Special Collections.
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.
I work closely with Jamie Vander Broek, our Art & Design librarian and with Deirdre Spencer, our History of Art librarian, as well as librarians in the Clark Library.
