The Archives has a new full-time employee–Sara Kiszka! She is responsible for the Records Center and the management of university records. She is already involved in several projects, such as creating a disaster recovery plan for the Archives and Records Center, updating Records Center protocol, and re-organizing the Records Center. In the fall, she will be conducting a university-wide records survey to determine whether departments are donating the proper records and managing their records efficiently. She will also be working with creating a larger electronic Archives for NMU in order to help preserve documents and prevent records being lost due to obsolete recording methods.
Sara says that she likes working with records management and electronic archives. She is particularly interested in how records show migration and auditing trails.
Sara is originally from Chesterton, IN and has a younger brother and sister. She likes dogs, reading, and watching bad reality television. She received her Bachelor’s in English Literature from Ball State and earned a Master’s in Library Science with a specialization in Archives and Records Management from Indiana University.
This is her first professional job, and she is excited to be here and to learn from this experience. She also hopes to survive her first winter in the UP!
Marcus says that he has waited seventeen long years for a records analyst. She is already finding and correcting problems at the Records Center, and he is thrilled that she is here.
