My Year in Review

This year brought a lot of new changes both personally and professionally. Putting some medical issues behind me, I altered my career path a bit and took on the role of Information specialist / librarian at Goffstown High School in New Hampshire. In this position, I have had the opportunity to imagine the perfect library and the perfect way to share knowledge of information with young people. I have also had the opportunity on my own to do a lot of public speaking, some one-on-one consulting with institutions, and networking with new colleagues around the world.
At Goffstown I've introduced a school archives. We are preparing for the 50th anniversary celebration of our school building in 2015. We have established a cooperative relationship with other local school libraries, the historical society, and the public library to most effectively bring information services and materials to our students. We have established a pen pal program with teens in Botswana. We have developed an internal school blog and information network to share ideas.We are introducing independent study classes so students can delve into aspects of information science that most interest them. I am working with the freshman class teachers to establish a standard for introducing research and information to their classes. We are preparing a long-range plan to establish the library as a "learning lab." There is so much going on and so much enthusiasm from our school community that I feel greatly energized, uplifted, and motivated. Looking at the information professions with a "Holistic" approach enables me to show young people that sharing information is more than randomly tweeting to one's friends. Information can be a very powerful tool.
This year I have had the opportunity to do more speaking at public libraries and historical societies. I also worked with a colleague to talk about our tips on social media with the New England Museum Association. The New England Archivists featured an interview with me in their recent newsletter and I led a panel at their last conference to address the topic of alternate career paths for archivists. I have also "discovered" online interviews. I was interviewed by Chick History for a podcast about Ida Annah Ryan, a hero of mine whom I discovered in the Waltham Public Library's archives when I worked as a young archivist. Most recently, I was interviewed at Fieldstone Common's Blog Radio program about caring for personal papers and documenting personal stories.
Social Media
Social media is no longer in the early adopter phase. Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the rest are intricately entwined in our professional lives. I have met more colleagues overseas. I am meeting new colleagues in the education field where I am exploring ideas of how information specialists can supplement and support the school curriculum.  Archivists, museum professionals and librarians continue to have an important and unique role to play in information. I plan to assist my colleagues around the world with understanding where information can take us and to excite young people about the opportunities proper use of information can afford us.
I continue to consult in my off time (whenever that is). I wound up three projects before beginning at school. I have a new book in the works (in my head and getting bantered about on long walks) with a professor of education at St. Anselm's University. We plan to write about how my field and experiences can influence hers. Very exciting stuff (for me anyway)!
But that's enough seriousness. Librarian in Black has inspired me to write about other aspects of my year:
Book - The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
New Craze - Steampunk
Show - Dr. Who 2012 Christmas special
Movie - My Fair Lady (Audrey Hepburn always and forever)

Favorite event - Watch City Festival 
Personal accomplishment - singing Karaoke in a bar
Professional accomplishment - beat boxing in front of a room full of high school students
Alter Ego - Steampunk librarian
Peace out all! Happy New Year!

ArchivesInfo Top Ten Stories of 2012

Welcome to the 3rd annual ArchivesInfo Top Ten Stories of the Year. Our list includes the stories that have impacted the cultural heritage professions -- more specifically archives, libraries, and museums - the most over the past year. These stories were greatly discussed, contributed to a change in our profession, and / or are on our radar as potential changers of the heritage we keep. They were garnered from the ArchivesInfo Twitter archives. I have evaluated my tweets based on my own personal outlook and welcome differing opinions. The list is admittedly biased toward the United States. 

This year, the list has shifted again. We still have stories about how the economy influences our professions, but I think that the outlook is a little brighter. I am also enthusiastic about the forward looking direction we all seem to be taking, with new ideas about how best to reach our public. Just missing the cut this year is the story about the woman who aimed to "conserve" a Spanish fresco and botched it ; the story of librarians versus publishers of ebooks (I want to wait and see how this plays out); the ongoing Boston College IRA tape story; Crowdsourcing (which seems to be becoming so commonplace that it is old news); The Alamo "victory of death" letter; and the release of RFK's papers.

So once again, without further ado, here is the ArchivesInfo top ten of 2012.

10. Highlighting our holdings
One of the most wonderful things about cultural heritage institutions are the collections themselves. [DUH?!] This year, it seems that we are pulling more of our materials out of the dark and showcasing them for all to see. New found discoveries related to timely topics seem to rise to the top and highlight why our materials are so wonderful, why what we do is important, and generate an excitement in the field for the possibilities of uncovering what still remains hidden among our collections.

9. Google
Google remains on my list for their innovative role in handling primary source material and for the controversy that surrounds some of their methods. It will be interesting to see how their hand in our field plays out -- if they will be strong partners or will be seen as adversaries in the end.

8. The Obama Library
Presidential libraries are always in the news. Talk swirls about the Obama library and where it will be erected. In  a presidential election year, this topic rises to our top ten.

7. Anniversaries - National Archives 150th, JFK 50th and more
Last year, all anniversary attention seemed focused on the 150th of the Civil War. This year, many many institutions are focusing on anniversaries of their existence and special events (including the high school where I now work, which is preparing for the 50th anniversary of the construction of our building in 1965).

6. Disaster Preparedness
From natural disasters to neglect, to the ravaging effects of war on artifacts, 2012 once again shined a light on the need to better plan for the care of our collections. Hurricane Sandy in the United States really opened the eyes of some laypeople for the urgency of this kind of preparedness.

5. Underdocumented / Hidden Collections
Related to #10 on our list, #4 shows how archivists and historians are working to uncover hidden stories. But we don't just seek articles about the famous, we are finding out more and more about hidden populations. Our collections have the ability to help showcase previously untold stories and can help make people aware of the diversity and quiet communities around them.

4. Save Archives, libraries and museums 
Much controversy has swirled over cutbacks in our professions once again. We are carefully watching Georgia, which tried to eliminate state Archives services.We are also watching deep cuts in Canada that mimic those we saw in Britain a year ago. Cuts continue around the globe, but Canada's stand out this year. Proposed renovations to the NYPL in the United States have caused quite a controversy in the United States and are included here.

3. Theft and vandalism
Perhaps it's a sign of the times, but stories of theft and vandalism in cultural heritage seemed to rise this year. On a good note, repatriation of stolen items from our past also continues.

2. Social Media
Cultural heritage professionals are jumping on board with social media as a way to garner a larger and stronger audiences. We are experimenting with sites such as Facebook and Pinterest to highlight collections, communicate basic information and seek feedback from patrons. This is a subject close to my heart and one that I think is vital to the continuation of our important work. However, in addition to helping us, social media presents both a preservation nightmare and requires us to reevaluate our purpose and methods of collecting and outreach.

1. Digitization
Repeating its #1 ranking from 2010, this year digitization was a clear choice for the most important story of the year. Most cultural heritage institutions now fully realize the importance of getting their collections online. There are large organizations such as the DPLA partners who are working hard to help smaller institutions that can't afford to go online on their own. We are fully embedded in a digital world and there is no looking back. Our professions are changing. Our responsibilities are changing. We are deeply committed to keeping up with the times and reinventing ourselves to showcase our role as keepers of our heritage and cultural knowledge. Can we do it fast enough to remain a vital part of civilization? I think that these stories show that the answer is "yes!"
