Emily Kader

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Rare Book Research Librarian
I oversee instruction and reference relating to rare books and special collections at Wilson Special Collections Library, which is part of the University Libraries at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As part of our Research and Instructional Services Department, I collaborate with my teaching colleagues and graduate assistants to craft human-centered active learning with primary sources. My reference and instruction work gives me an opportunity to work with materials across time periods, languages, and geographies. My own research focuses on paratext in twentieth-century literary books and radical empathy within special collections pedagogy.
