I am Associate Director & Head of Public Services at the Lilly Library, Indiana University. I supervise reference and instruction activities and coordinate exhibition, web development and digitization activities. I am a former president of the Indiana University Bloomington Faculty Council and am past-chair of the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries. As an adjunct instructor in the Department of Information & Library Science, School of Informatics & Computing (the former Indiana University School of Library and Information Science), I teach a course on book history every spring.
I am also an MA/PhD student in the Indiana University Department of History. I’m interested in the history of American capitalism in the Early Republic and how an emerging new economic order affected individuals and families.
