B.A., St Francis Coll in;
Archivist and Associate Librarian for Distinctive Collections & Information Services, Brooklyn College, CUNY
As the College Archivist, I seek to capture information documenting the history of Brooklyn College and of those past and present associated with the institution. In addition, I collect papers and records from individuals and organizations from the borough, with a particular interest in the materials of local legislators.
Furthermore, I coordinate a minor in Archival Studies and Community Documentation which affords undergraduate students the opportunity to enter the archival profession.
Areas of Expertise: My areas of study are Archival Management and local history studies.
