Special Collections has a number of resources related to the study of art and art history. Some of the most important resources are highlighted below, but we invite you to visit Special Collections to see how we can help support your research in this area. -- Jason Dean
Students, faculty and researchers are increasingly interested in the special collections of university libraries brought about in part by the enhanced discovery access and use of rare materials made possible through digitization. Jason's deep understanding of the relationships among special collections, archives, technologies and scholarship has already increased the visibility and use of Southwestern's treasures.
His undergraduate degree in history is from Hardin-Simmons University, and his MS LIS is from Syracuse University. Jason has also completed coursework at Rare Book School at the University of Virginia.
Prior to coming to Southwestern, Jason was Head of the Special Formats Cataloging Unit at the University of Arkansas, and was previously the Cataloger and Technical Services Librarian at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, where he started their library.
