About ccovert

Special Collections Librarian at the Fleet Library at Rhode Island School of Design


I am the Readers’ Services Librarian at RISD. Reference, Instruction, and Circulation keeps me busy! Since coming to RISD in 2004, I have been researching RISD’s dazzle camouflage collection. Currently I am working on a dazzle exhibition and symposium for February 2009. Before coming to RISD, I was the Library Director at the Corcoran Library in Washington, DC.

Looking forward to Denver!
