About meI'm a Special Collections Librarian at Binghamton University. I also lead the charge on the Legacy Libraries and Libraries of Early America projects here at LibraryThing, so if you have any questions about those, or want to get involved, please let me know!

Major interests: history of the book in early America and Bermuda, colonial and early national college libraries, literary curiosities and biblio-hoaxes.

About my libraryMainly history, biography, books on books and natural history - but with some fiction (mainly historical fiction and bibliomysteries) and other things thrown in as well. I also collect rarer items.

Check out my Read in 2020 tag to see what I've been reading so far this year, or the Read in 2019 tag for last year's list.
