Independent Librarian
Washington, DC
I’m a book historian and digital media scholar based in Washington, DC. I worked at the Folger Shakespeare Library for nearly a decade as Undergraduate Program Director and as Digital Media Strategist. Now I explore how early printed books were made and how they are represented in digital images as an independent librarian—someone who was trained as a scholar but now works to connect students and faculty with librarians, archivists, and rare materials collections. My book, Studying Early Printed Books 1450–1800: A Practical Guide, will be out from Wiley in late 2018.
