Kathleen's role in the library
The Germanic Collections include materials for research and instruction in literature and linguistics, cultural studies, history, and social studies. The geographic scope of these collections includes the Scandinavian countries, Flemish-speaking Belgium, Luxemburg, and the Netherlands; however, the primary collecting areas are Germany, Austria, and German-speaking Switzerland.
As the curator for the Germanic collections and acting curator for medieval studies, I select new materials and provide reference assistance; I also work with faculty and students to help them find the materials that they need for their research and teaching.
