A Fellowship Recipient for UNC-Chapel Hill’s “Learning from Artists’ Archives” dual Art History and Library Science programs, I received my MSLS from UNC’s School of Information & Library Science with a specialization in both community and artists’ archives. I taught archiving workshops to artists at institutions like The Mint Museum and the North Carolina Museum of Art as part of the UNC fellowship, and subsequently taught locally at Erector Square in New Haven. I cut my teeth as an archivist in artists’ and studio archives at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in New Mexico and for artists and artisans in North Carolina and Connecticut. I previously worked as a librarian in academic libraries and archives, public libraries, special collections, and art museums. My parallel bookbinding career began as a student in the Book Arts and Conservation Labs and Special Collections of Wellesley College, which grew into Rambling Rambler Press, my book arts studio. Under my press, I have taught bookbinding tutorials and worked on a number of collaborative projects with engineers, architects, tattooers, artists, and more. I also hold a BA from Wellesley College in Art History with a focus on ancient material cultures.

About this site
This website grew out of UNC Art Department professor JJ Bauer’s Digital Art History course (Spring 2016). ElizabethGrab.com quickly grew further to represent my academic work and reflections on professional activities in art history, library science, and archives & records management. In addition, I recently began including my work as a book artist under the studio name of Rambling Rambler Press.
