librarianship

I am completing an M.A. in Library & Information Studies from University of Wisconsin-Madison. My interests include art librarianship, makerspaces, ephemera, and digital humanities; my vision is a library designed for artists and writers (for the artist and writer in all of us) where people can access and engage with image and text throughout its entire life cycle, from creating it in makerspaces to researching it in archives.

Little Magazine Blog

Since January 2013 I have worked with the Little Magazine Collection, one of North America’s largest collection of English-language little magazines, housed in the Department of Special Collections at Memorial Library, University of Wisconsin-Madison. With Susan Barribeau, the English Humanities Bibliographer, I run the LITTLE MAGAZINE BLOG:

Woodland Pattern Archive

UW-Madison Libraries Dept. of Special Collections recently acquired the archive of Woodland Pattern Book Center, and I assisted with initial processing of the collection’s broadsides and correspondence. I also helped install an exhibit in Special Collections, “Woodland Pattern Broadsides: Thirty Years of Poets Reading.”

The Bubbler at Madison Public Library

The Bubbler is a makerspace and programming series headquartered at Madison Central Library and coordinated by artist-librarian Trent Miller. I have illustrated an FAQ flyer for the Bubbler and taught a creativity workshop there.
