The Field Book Project is pleased to welcome to new members to our team: Julia Blase, Field Book Project Manager, and Andrea Hall, Field Book Project conservator.
Julia will be managing day-to-day project operations and coordinating communications between project partners. She has an MLIS from Denver University, an MMS from the Duke University Fuqua School of Business, and a BA from Duke University. She comes to the Field Book Project from the National Digital Stewardship Residency, a fellowship program with the Library of Congress, where she spent the last year completing a digital asset management analysis, needs assessment, and strategic plan for the National Security Archive.
Andrea Hall will be providing conservation assessment and care for field book collections. She originally worked on the Project as an intern in the Fall of 2013. She attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio where she received a B.S. in Biology and has honed her conservation skills at Bowling Green State University Library, Botany Department of the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum, the Preservation Department of the University of Virginia Libraries just to name a few. We are thrilled to have her rejoining the team in her new role.
