Schlesinger Library, Harvard University
Cambridge, MA
I have been an archivist at the Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University since 2008. Currently, my primary responsibilities are processing and public services. I have been involved in processing three of the Library's trans* manuscript collections. While working with these collections I navigated issues relating to third party privacy, description, and the limitations of subject headings as they relate to identity. Prior to my position at the Schlesinger, I have worked as an archivist at Harvard Business School, the Brooklyn Museum, and as the photo archivist at the American Jewish Historical Society.
