I am the Manager of Historical & Special Collections within the Harvard Law School Library. HSC collects historical materials pertaining to the history and development of the law worldwide, with special emphasis on the history of legal education and the history of the Harvard Law School. We collect materials in all formats, including rare books, early manuscripts, collections of faculty papers, and visual, audiovisual, and born-digital materials. We have an active digitization program, and a growing percentage of our collection is freely available online. 

I have a law degree and a library degree, and have worked in many areas of law libraries. My mission is to integrate HSC and our collections into the life of the community.
