I am delighted to announce that Jenny Brice will be Dartmouth College Library’s first Digital Preservation Librarian effective May 12, 2014. Jenny joins us from the Bay Area Video Coalition in San Francisco, California where she is Preservation Coordinator. In that capacity she supports the development of the Dance Heritage Coalition Dance Preservation and Digitization Project, a digital repository of video documenting America’s dance history.
Jenny also manages the AV Artifact Atlas, an on-line tool that aids in the identification and documentation of errors created during analog recording or digital transfer.
Jenny has an undergraduate degree in Comparative Literature from the University of California Berkeley. She received her Masters of Library and Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh with a Preservation Specialization. Jenny also has worked as a conservation technician for the University of Pittsburgh Library and the New York Public Library.
I would like to thank my colleagues on the search committee (Bill Ghezzi, Paul Merchant, Jr., Jay Satterfield, and Becky Torrey) for their insights and dedication to our task. This position is funded from the Manton Foundation Endowment that supports the Dartmouth Digital Library Program.
