Rush University Medical Center
Chicago, IL
I am a lone arranger, serving as the archivist for Rush University Medical Center with collections dating back to 1837. Although the Rush Archives falls under Rush University hierarchically, we function more like a corporate archives, with our main internal users coming from marketing/communications and philanthropy/development. Half of our users are external, however. Since 2011, we have had hundreds of items digitized by and made available online through the Internet Archive, which has changed how I do my job and further empowers my users. I earned my MSLS from UNC's School of Information and Library Science, 2006; served as Assistant Archivist at Rush, 2006-2012; Archivist for UL (Underwriters Laboratories) with independent archives consulting firm Kenamore & Klinkow, 2013-2014; and returned to Rush as Archivist, 2014-. I am a member of the Steering Committee of the Chicago Area Archivists and a member of the Forest Park Public Library Board.
