As a library assistant in special collections cataloging at the Getty Research Institute since 2005, I process archival collections and write finding aids for the Research Library. Recent finding aids I've authored include the William Hemmerdinger papers, the Hal Glicksman papers, the Rolf Nelson Gallery records, and the Julius Shulman photography archive. I hold a BA in art history from Vassar College and a master’s in library science from California State University, San Jose. My current research interests are in digital preservation and access issues, archive and research-based contemporary art practices, and midcentury modern architecture in Los Angeles.
