Anna's role in the library

I collect visual and textual materials for the Art & Architecture Library and provide research assistance in the fields of art, architecture, and design. I provide instructional outreach to students and faculty across various departments and programs, including the Program in Writing and Rhetoric. I also develop content for the Art & Architecture Library website, organize exhibitions, and help to curate the Library's Art Locked Stacks Collection.
