History & Archives Projects

National Radio Astronomy Observatory Archives
My current gig: archivist for this small corporate archive, with primary responsibility for creating and managing their Omeka digital repository.

Staunton Stories
In 2016, I organized and ran this one-day community archiving event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Staunton (VA) Downtown Business Association.

Industrial History of Norwood
I researched and wrote this website on the industrial history of Norwood (MA), highlighting primary sources from the collection of the Norwood Historical Society.

Digitization in the Real World (Metropolitan New York Library Council: 2010)
This book highlights 34 cases of digital collection building in libraries, archives, museums, and cultural heritage institutions throughout North America. I co-authored (with Joanne Riley) the chapter “The Mass. Memories Road Show: A State-Wide Scanning Project.” Available on Amazon.com.

The Mass. Memories Road Show
I was project manager for this amazing community archives project for five years.

The Massachusetts Studies Network (now defunct)
This was the first-ever online social network for humanities practitioners in Massachusetts, back in the days before Facebook et al. became popular.

Abuzz.com (now defunct)
I was the Travel Community Manager for this mid-1990s online social network.
