Julie Sommerfeldt is Manager of Rare Books & Special Collections (RBSC) at the University of Sydney Library. RBSC is one of the largest rare & special collections in Australian University Libraries, containing many significant collections and treasures. Currently, one of Julie’s primary aims is to raise the profile of these wonderful and rich collections and to continue to develop opportunities for their use in a variety of ways including traditional education and research activities as well as non-traditional forms of outreach. With a Masters in Conservation Studies from the UK specialising in books and library materials, Julie has worked as a book conservator internationally, most recently at the Bodleian Libraries, the University of Oxford. Prior to that, she worked in Sydney with Bookbinder and Restorer, Sabine Piérard (now in France), and as a conservation framer at ASA Conservation Framing.
