New University Archivist Bethany Anderson Joining Special Collections Staff October 22

The Library is pleased to announce that Bethany Anderson will join the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library as the new University Archivist on October 22. Bethany comes to the Library from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where she’s worked as the Archival Operations and Reference Specialist for Science and Technology since 2012.

Bethany holds an MA from the University of Chicago with a specialization in Near Eastern Art and Archaeology, and an MLIS with a concentration in archival enterprise from the University of Texas at Austin.

Bethany is solidly grounded in archival theory, best practices, and standards at a time when Special Collections is breaking virtual ground on its ArchivesSpace instance and working through the implementation phase of Aeon for public service operation.

Welcome, Bethany!
