The Lillian Goldman Law Library is delighted to welcome Ryan Greenwood as its first Yale Law Library Rare Book Fellow. Ryan has a Master’s in Library & Information Science from Rutgers University, and a Ph.D. and M.A. in Medieval Studies from the University of Toronto. He has two articles accepted for publication: “Just War and Crusade” (with Frederick H. Russell), forthcoming in The Cambridge History of Medieval Canon Law (2013), and “War and Sovereignty in Medieval Roman Law,” forthcoming in Law and History Review. He was chosen as the 2013-2014 Rare Book Fellow from a highly competitive pool of close to a hundred applicants.
The Yale Law Library Rare Book Fellowship is designed to train the next generation of rare law book librarians. For the next nine months, Ryan will be immersed in all aspects of special collections librarianship in a research law library, including collection development, reference, cataloging, and preservation. He will also spend time working in the Yale University Library’s Manuscripts & Archives, and in the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
The Yale Law Library Rare Fellowship is supported in part by a contribution from the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
Selection for the 2014-2015 Rare Book Fellow will take place in Spring 2014. Stay tuned for the announcement.
