Welcome to our new Archivist for Digital Projects and Outreach, Anna St.Onge!
Anna holds a B.A. in History and Celtic Studies from the University of Toronto (including a year at the National University of Ireland Maynooth), and a Master of Information Studies degree from the University of Toronto with a specialization in Archival Studies and Book History & Print Culture. Anna has worked as a Librarian Assistant at Knox College, U of T, and as a contract archivist with the Ontario Jewish Archives, the Kelly Library of St. Michael’s College, U of T, and the Clara Thomas Archives. From July 2007 to the Fall of 2008, Anna served as Interim Head of Special Collections and Interim Curator of the Henri Nouwen Archives & Research Collections at the Kelly Library, where she was involved in several digital initiatives. Anna is a member of the Archives Association of Ontario’s standing committee on ARCHEION (the web-based repository of the province’s archival descriptions and virtual exhibits), and has published on the archival legacy of Henry Nouwen.
The new position held by Anna is responsible for bringing electronic facsimiles of archival documents to the Libraries’ website with appropriate contextual information, developing policies and procedures for ensuring the preservation and accessibility of records with enduring value that were created using digital technology, and implementing a communications strategy that will make York’s archival program and its holdings better known to faculty, students, and an international community of researchers. Please join me in welcoming Anna to York University Libraries as she assumes her new duties as Archivist, Digital Projects and Outreach.
Anna may be found in 305C Scott (Clara Thomas Archives) extension 22374, effective Tuesday, February 17. Her email address: email@example.com
Please make her feel welcome!
