Ann E. Robinson

Reference Assistant
Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Widener Library

I have worked in academic libraries for over 20 years, mostly in reference roles.  At Harvard, I have worked in the Cabot Science Library and the Grossman Library for Harvard Extension, and am currently working in Widener.

Outside of the library, I am an independent historian of science with research interests in the modern physical sciences, classification, nomenclature, and international organizations.  I am also an avid genealogist.

I have a BA in History from UC San Diego, an MLIS from San Jose State University, an ALM in the History of Science from the Harvard Extension School, and a PhD in History from UMass Amherst.
