I am a librarian, working in special collections and digital libraries. My collection interests are popular culture materials (particularly the popular literature formats of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, such as dime novels, story papers, and magazines); travel guides and travel narratives; and the personal papers and scrapbooks of ordinary people from days gone by. I can find something to be excited about in almost any collection, though, and am often delighted at how even the most seemingly unrelated things end up having a connection. I am also interested in digital humanities (and other types of digital scholarship) projects. I love dreaming up new ways to share special collections materials online, through social media, podcasts, and other venues.
