As Curator of Modern Literature & Manuscripts in the Rare Books & Manuscripts Library, I aim to make special collections materials engaging and relevant to students, faculty, scholars, and the community. I serve as resource for those seeking teaching and research support with modern literature and related historical collections, actively build and manage these collections, and collaborate with faculty to provide learning opportunities for students. I also promote awareness and use through programming and outreach, including curating exhibits and organizing events.
