My name is Chella Vaidyanathan. I am the Curator of 19th-21st Century Rare Books and Manuscripts in the Department of Special Collections and Archives at the Sheridan Libraries of Johns Hopkins University. I am also the Academic Liaison Librarian for the Department of History, Center for Africana Studies, and the Program in Latin American Studies. I love working with rare books and teaching classes using primary sources from special collections. Particularly, I love integrating digital primary source materials, multi-media, and Web 2.0 tools like blogs, wikis, Flickr, YouTube, etc. in my classes.
