Anna has been the graduate humanities intern in the Research & Instructional Services department since the fall of 2020. While she spent the last academic year working remotely, she'll be working in both Perkins and Lilly this year. At Duke, Anna works on all kinds of projects, including reference, collection development, and outreach work, but she especially likes working with students and helping them with their research. When she's not at Duke, she's working on her MSLS degree at UNC, which she plans to complete in 2022.

Anna grew up in Raleigh, NC, and attended UNC for her undergraduate degree, majoring in English and Classics and graduating in 2019. Before taking up her MSLS program at UNC last fall, she earned an MSt in early modern English literature at the University of Oxford (Exeter College), focusing on the relationship between the publication of Latin-language literature and Latin education in 16th-17th century England. She lives in Chapel Hill.
