Curator for Slavic and East European Collections
As the Slavic and East European collections librarian, the geographic scope of the collections I curate includes Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and many other countries in East Central and Southeast Europe (including Greece). I select materials for research and instruction published in and about these regions in new and old formats, in subject areas including literature and linguistics, cultural studies, history, social sciences, fine and performing arts, and popular culture. I also consult and collaborate with students and faculty to help them find the materials that they need for their research and their teaching.
