Bancroft Library
Head of Archival Processing
Berkeley, CA
I currently manage archival processing workflows and activities at The Bancroft Library. Before that I worked as archivist for PG&E, as processing archivist at The Bancroft Library, and as archivist and librarian for the Judah L. Magnes Museum. I have a PhD in History, an M.A. in Women's Studies, and my MLIS is from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I am currently working on one project examining the archival processing manual as genre and another exploring the afterlife of criminal evidence in archives.
