Where I've Studied and Worked


Experience in Academic, Archival, and School Libraries



Archival Library


I have worked in collections in Butler Library, Columbia University, and have researched at NYPL, the Library of Congress, and the Center for Hellenic Studies. At the Arthur W. Diamond Law Library, I performed an initial processing of the archive of Telford Taylor, the famous Nuremberg Trials prosecutor (the archive was completed by a professional archivist). At the District of Columbia Historical Society, I processed and created a finding aid for the papers of Michael Richman, an American art historian who has consulted on the Korean Veterans War Memorial and other National Mall war memorials.


School Library


At the Foundation Schools, an independent school system serving at-risk youth with special needs, I was hired first to update catalog records in line with curriculum standards, then was hired as the librarian at the Foundation School of Montgomery County. To better improve services to the school, I catalogued a backlog of books and audiovisual materials, corrected records, and updated the nonfiction collection, the bulk of which had been acquired in the middle 1980s. I applied for and won grants for the library, including the ALA-NEH "We the People" book grant series and other ALA public programs and the ALSC Bookapalooza and YALSA Great Books Giveaway Grants, which is enabled both Schools to update their library collections. The FS students benefit from print items with a wider range of reading and interest levels. Recent additions (2018) include a collection serving children with autism spectrum disorders and their teachers, therapists, and caregivers.
