I'm interested in books as artifacts; as evidence of the era in which they were made, their influence on society, and of the communities and industries that come together to create them. Luckily for me, the researchers and fellows here do all the hard work. I work at the Dibner Library, helping scholars use the primary and secondary resources we offer to create new scholarship in their respective fields. In doing so, I get to learn every day about the accomplishments of the world's greatest scientific minds directly from the source: their books.
