As Chief of the Rare Books and Special Collections Division at the Library of Congress, Dimunation has been responsible for the largest collection of rare books in North America since 1998. A librarian and scholar of broad interests, his current projects include reconstructing Thomas Jefferson’s library at the Library of Congress.
