NBSS Bookbinding graduate Lauren Schott, BB ’13 was the Boston Public Library staff member who found two misplaced prints—a Rembrandt and a Dürer—from the library’s collection. The missing prints created a public relations crisis for the library when the media picked up on the missing artwork.

Schott, who was interviewed for The Boston Globe story said, “I think there’s been a lot of focus on the negative—that these items were misplaced. People need to recognize that these collections are huge, and we have amazing things. This is an opportunity for us to make these more protected and more accessible. These are national treasures.”
