As Curator of Modern Literature and Manuscripts in the Rare Books & Manuscripts Library, I serve as a resource for those seeking teaching and research support with modern literature and related historical collections, actively build and manage these collections, and collaborate with instructors to provide hands-on instruction for students. I also promote awareness and use of RBML's holdings through programming and outreach, including curating exhibitions and organizing events.
