Continuing with our series of introductions from your SNAP leaders, here is SNAP’s fearless chair and founder, Rebecca Goldman.
Name: Rebecca Goldman
SNAP participation: Chair
Position: Media and Digital Services Librarian
Institution: Connelly Library, La Salle University in Philadelphia
Years at position: 1
Education: BA Swarthmore College, MSLIS Drexel University, post-Master’s archives coursework at Drexel University
My job is a little bit of everything! I oversee my library’s Media and Digital Services department, which houses the circulating AV collection and a growing digitization program. I work with Special Collections and Art Museum staff on digital projects. I run La Salle’s institutional repository. I help faculty and staff with copyright questions. I also supervise the University Archivist and two Media/Digital Services staff.
I’m probably best known in the archives world as the author of Derangement and Description, a webcomic about archives, and as a rabble-rouser on issues that affect new archivists like you.
I’m always happy to talk about ways we can make SNAP better. Ask me questions here, or send me an email.
