First of all, we at the archives would like to thank all who attended our Evening at the Archives event to celebrate WNMU’s 50th Anniversary. It was a great time and we are pleased to announce it was a success. If you missed it keep an eye on our website as well as the Public Radio website, as we will be posting the presentation PowerPoint and audio clips soon!
We have been very busy at the archives and we would like to take this time to note a very exciting announcement for us. Jaime Ganzel, our Arrangement and Description Specialist, has been appointed as the Interim Archivist when Marcus Robyns, University Archivist, goes on sabbatical to write a book.
Jaime has been with the archives almost two years and we are confident she will rise to the new challenges and take them in stride. She has a BA in English, a minor in anthropology, and has taken coursework relevant to the archives. She is currently a post-baccalaureate student here at NMU and is a Graduate Teaching Assistant for HS 105—World History students. In the future Jaime plans to attend graduate school for Archival Science, and we wish her luck on this stepping stone to her dream.
University Archivist, Marcus Robyns, speaks about Jaime’s appointment.
Marcus will be on sabbatical from July 1 through December, 2013, and we would like to wish him the best of luck on his book. He will be writing on functional analysis as an archival appraisal technique and the way it differs from traditional appraisal techniques. Be sure to look for it in a bookstore near you next year!
