Bio:

Dr. Rachel Harris is passionate about supporting the discoverability and use of images and texts in rare book libraries, special collections, archives, and the Web. While completing her doctorate at Concordia University in 2017, Harris collected and analyzed hundreds of book illustrations from rare book libraries and the Web. This search process inspired her FQRSC-funded research on image browsing during her professional library studies degree at McGill University. Focused on bringing primary sources out of hiding for research and teaching, Harris is currently working on a range of library initiatives at the Jean-Léon Allie Library and Archives at Saint Paul University.
