Good-Bye to All That

As most of you know, on Monday, June 24th the UW Libraries will be moving to a new catalog.  Over the past few weeks we have been freezing various elements of our old system, Millennium.

While I’m not inclined to get overly sentimental over these kind of things, it does mark a big change and this is the last I will see of a screen I have been familiar with for over eight years (at various jobs).

Here’s the bibliographic record (in MARC format) for the final (copy cataloging) record I added:

Little Jack Tar

And here’s an item record from the last (original cataloging) record I created:

American Red Cross Society scrapbooks item record

Drop me a line on Monday and let me know how they look in the new catalog. I’ll be in Minneapolis at the Rare Books and Manuscripts (RBMS) Preconference.

I joined The Shubert Archive as Processing Archivist in 2015, having worked previously at numerous archives and special collections, including the University of Washington, New York Public Library, King County Archives, and New York University. I earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from Hunter College, City University of New York and an M.L.I.S. from the Palmer School of Library & Information Science, Long Island University. I have been a Certified Archivist since 2005. Throughout my career, I have been active professionally and held several leadership roles. Among my favorites are: Dance Librarians Discussion Group convener and editor of the newsletter of the Performing Arts Roundtable of the Society of American Archivists. I also was involved with the American Theatre Archive Project, a national grassroots initiative dedicated to assisting active performing arts companies with the preservation of their legacy. In addition, I have significant experience as a freelance archival consultant.
