I would like to Introduce Bethany Anderson, who will be posting from time to time on this blog. Bethany is my new colleague at the University of Illinois Archives, and she is working on a two-year project to arrange, describe, digitize and enhance access to records form our college of Engineering.
Bethany has a MLIS from the University of Texas at Austin, with a concentration in Archives and Records Management; she also holds and MA in Near Eastern Langauges and Civilizations from the University of Chicago and a BA in Anthropology from the University of Michigan. She most recently worked at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas.
As part of her initial training, I asked Bethany to process to the paper and electronic files of William Greenough, a former professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology, Psychology, and Psychiatry. As part of this, she discovered a very useful tool, which she’ll be reviewing in the next day or two.
