Elizabeth Koper

Outreach Librarian

I couldn’t say whether I’m more interested in gardening, history or art – fortunately my job combines them all!

As Outreach Librarian, it’s my job to encourage people to use the Lindley Libraries: by organising tours, running workshops for researchers, or going out to speak about our collections.

I’m also Rare Books Librarian, caring for our earliest books, which date back to 1514. And as Secretary to the Picture Panel I’m the point of contact for botanical artists from across the world hoping to exhibit with the RHS.

Each day is different, and I get to meet interesting, informed people and talk about our wonderful collections. I couldn’t say whether I’m more interested in gardening, history or art – fortunately my job combines them all!
