Kristen's role in the library

As head of Conservation Services, I'm fortunate to be able to work with an amazingly talented group of conservators and technicians. We repair, house, and document collections throughout SUL and collaborate with colleagues within Stanford, the greater Bay Area, and beyond.

More about Kristen

My research interests are wide-ranging from historical bookbinding leathers to Armenian prayer scrolls (hmayil) to the bookbinder Hazel Dreis who was active in California in the 1920's and 1930's, and further afield in New Mexico and Washington DC in the 1940's.
