Student Assistant
Loveland, Ohio
I am a fourth year undergraduate at The Ohio State University Columbus campus. I am majoring in Medieval and Renaissance Studies with a minor in English and Studio Art. I am a student assistant at The Ohio State University Conservation Unit where I work with Harry Campbell, the head Book and Paper Conservator. In the summer of 2017 I was awarded the Undergraduate Summer Library Research Fellowship in which I conducted condition surveys, a codicological inventory and preservation needs assessment of 48 pre-modern codices and 98 incunabula in the Rare Books and Manuscripts Library (RBML) of the OSU Libraries. I conducted this work under the advisement of Harry Campbell and the OSUL RBML Curator, Eric Johnson. I will be presenting my research at The Midwest Regional Conservation Guild Symposium in Cincinnati, October 13-15, 2017.
