Author Melissa Mannon is an archivist, cultural heritage consultant, and information expert with twenty years of experience promoting collaboration and professionalism among museums, libraries, historical societies, town governments, and private collections. She is the principal consultant of ArchivesInfo.  Melissa’s experience and training in archives, libraries, and museums gives her unique expertise that can benefit her clients and the care of wide-ranging cultural heritage objects. Melissa was one of the first archivists to actively encourage cross-professional collaboration and to promote connections between museologists, archivists, librarians, and other cultural heritage partners to help ensure the security, accessibility, and understanding of a broad range of cultural heritage resources. (This type of collaboration is much more widely accepted now than it was in the 1990s.)

Along with her consulting, Melissa Mannon is a published book author, an enthusiastic speaker, and educator.  She writes and presents on a broad range of topics related to securing our cultural heritage, archives and records management.
