Liisi's role in the library

As Assistant Curator for Estonian and Baltic Studies, I have as my main responsibility to build Stanford's collection of Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian material in all formats (books, periodicals, manuscripts, electronic sources etc.). My wider goal is to enhance the Baltic studies overall by advising scholars and students interested in the matter, engaging in collaborative projects with other institutions and organizing events and exhibits at Stanford.
