She was the founder and, for seven years, the director of the Folger's Undergraduate Program, which brought DC-area students into the Library for semester-long seminars on the history of early modern books and emphasized a hands-on exploration of the materiality of texts. She is currently the Library's Digital Media Strategist, a position in which she seeks to connect the Library's rich material resources with digital tools, opening up access to the Library to scholars and the public across the world.
