“I am very proud to have been appointed the Rare Books Librarian here at Monash. It is a great honour to be given the opportunity to curate, build and promote this extraordinary collection," said Stephen.
"I was very fortunate to have worked with the previous Librarian, Richard Overell, for a number of years until his retirement. He had a great knowledge of books, an anecdote for everything, and was a true mentor for me.”
“I would like to invite any interested academics and librarians to the Rare Books Section to discuss the diverse collections and how we might assist your research or teaching.”
