Jessica Grimmer, Ph.D., MLIS


Hi, I'm Jess! I'm a cultural archivist and historian.

Connecting people with resources that engage them with history and culture has been at the heart of my work as a music historian for over a decade. I became committed to increasing access to primary source materials after completing extensive archival research across France and the United States, and subsequently completed an MLIS at the University of Maryland.

My research focuses on the nexus of music, institutions, and political discourse, and the sustainability of digital collections,

with a special interest in encoded music.

I currently serve as a Performing Arts Specialist at the US Copyright Office and Project Archivist at Special Collections in Performing Arts at the University of Maryland.
