Amanda is one of our Digitization Specialists;  she is working on her MS in School of  Library and Information Studies. Amanda plans to become an archivist.  She has worked in both print and digital media, and has terrific supervisory experience which has already proved invaluable as we juggle both students and the unpredictable events that always come into play in a production environment. She has terrific attention to detail and conscientious attention to "getting it right"!  She is exploring the possibility of turning some of her great ideas for improvements into independent studies that will further her degree.  Go Amanda!!
