Head, Department of Preservation and Conservation
I am head of the Department of Preservation and Conservation, which coordinates preservation of all media types, binding, book repair, and conservation for the University Library.
I have worked in preservation at the University of Michigan Library since 1994 and have been head of the Department of Preservation and Conservation since 2005. I taught library and archive preservation in the U-M School of Information between 2006 and 2016, and I am a past editor of the American Institute for Conservation Book and Paper Group Annual. I have degrees in classics, literature, and library studies, and a Higher National Diploma in Conservation from the Camberwell College of Art in the U.K.
