Special Collections/Archives
All curators and archivists could potentially collect born-digital materials, so I’m including all of them!
All staff who are currently responsible for paper records will/have responsibilities for managing born-digital materials.
Digital Records Archivist (full time), University Archivist, and two curators.
Four full-time professional curators collect born-digital materials along with analog materials and a wide variety of other
duties. We have no dedicated field collectors.
In addition, we have one student (.25 FTE) and another part-time intern.
Our University Archivist is our point person for born-digital material.
Right now we have a full time Digital Archivist in our Film and Media Archive, and a staff member in University Archives
who has 50% of her job designated for digital collections. I would anticipate needing to add more staff capacity for this
in other units of the department.
