As the Curator, Historical Manuscripts, I primarily assist researchers in accessing UMD Libraries special collections resources related to state of Maryland history and culture, historic preservation, and women’s history/women’s studies. I also interact with potential donors wishing to give materials related to the topics above to the Libraries. Additionally, I teach instruction sessions on how to find and access primary source materials. I received my undergraduate degree from Saint Mary’s College of Maryland in History and French. I completed my MLS and MA in History at the University of Maryland, College Park, and am currently pursuing a PhD in History.
