Alumnus News: Dr. Timothy Perry appointed Medieval Manuscript and Early Book Librarian at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library

Following his graduation from the doctoral programme, Timothy Perry (PhD 2010) spent two years as a lecturer in Classics at Dartmouth College.

Timothy then returned to school, completing a Master of Information degree in Library and Information Science at the University of Toronto’s iSchool in 2015. While at the iSchool, he was also actively involved in the Book History and Print Culture program and worked as a Printing Fellow at the Massey College Press.

Upon completing his MI, Timothy took up a position as Special Collections Librarian at the University of Missouri. He has now returned to the University of Toronto, where he has recently been appointed Medieval Manuscript and Early Book Librarian at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library.

His work as a rare book librarian provides plenty of opportunities to practice his Greek and Latin, and he also teaches classes visiting the Fisher from a variety of departments – without having to do any marking.
