About Margaret

Margaret Gamm is Assistant Head of Special Collections and Curator of Rare Books. She is available to teach classes using all Special Collections holdings--especially book collections--and will happily provide research help and guidance in the history of the book and other Special Collections areas. She will not tell you how much your books are worth, but will point you toward people who can. Her current research interests are the antiquarian book trade, collections security, and the interoperability of library systems and archival metadata.
