Meet Morgan Adams, Mellon Conservator for Special Collections

“I’m Morgan Adams and I treat the Libraries’ rare books, manuscripts, and works of art on paper to make them available for research and teaching, exhibition and digitization, and to ensure their preservation for generations to come. My expertise includes book-binding history, the history of artists’ materials, and the technical analysis of paper-and parchment-based objects. My favorite part of my job is working with students and faculty to make discoveries about our collections, to better understand their materials, manufacture, and their history of use and change over time.”
