Web Archiving Roundtable elections: candidates and bylaws

This year we are electing a Vice Chair, Education Coordinator, Web Liaison, and Social Media Manager.  The Vice Chair is a 2-year term, while the rest are 1-year.  We are also voting on changes to the Roundtable bylaws.  Below the candidate information are the proposed bylaw changes in red.

 

Vice Chair candidate

John Bence

I am the University Archivist at Emory University and  has served as a social media manager on the steering committee for two years, working closely with the web liaison on integrating the blog and the twitter feed and on identifying content for both. I have been involved in survey of members and two of the roundtable’s online hangouts with web archiving professionals. At work, I will be making the transition from the California Digital Library’s Web Archiving Service to Archive-It and, thus, will be engaged in web archiving in such a away that will make me particularly attune to issues in the field and concerns of the membership. Having seen the group make valuable contributions until now, I would love to help continue our work and make the roundtable an effective group for archivists working in web archiving.

 

Education Coordinator candidate

Anna Perricci

Summary: Please re-elect me as the education coordinator for the the Web Archiving Roundtable.  I would like to move forward with the work I have done with the Web Archiving Roundtable steering committee over the past two years.  In the near term I have plans for more webinars following the two webinars we held in May, 2015.  As an active member of the International Internet Preservation Consortium Preservation Working Group, a co-founder of the METRO Web Archiving SIG and active member of ARLIS/NA I look forward to continuing to build communication channels and collaborations between these and other groups. Thanks for your consideration!

My current position: In May 2013, I started as a Web Archiving Project Librarian at Columbia University.  A main goal of my role is to foster collaboration and improvements in web archiving.  I work with colleagues to form new collection development models, address technical challenges and implement strategies for the stewardship of web archives.  We are building strong networks of professionals with an interest in web archiving to extend current web archiving models and methods.

Background: While completing my MSI in Archives and Records Management at the University of Michigan with a focus on digital preservation, I also earned a graduate teaching certificate.  At the New York Public Library, I served as a preservation librarian and then was responsible for education, outreach and statistical analysis at ARTstor.  On a volunteer basis I have helped artists and activists in New York City preserve their work in multiple venues including in conjunction with FIGMENT (a participatory art festival) and the Archives Working Group of Occupy Wall Street.

 

Web Liaison candidates

Melissa Isaacs

I completed my MLS from Emporia State University in 2012; I also hold completed Master’s degrees in American Studies and Museum Studies and am gradually working my way towards SAA’s Digital Archivist certificate. Since 2012 I have served as the Archivist for the Religion in Kansas Project through the Religious Studies department at the University of Kansas. The Religion in Kansas Project began in 2009 as an oral history project, but has since been expanded in scope to include the development of a digital clearinghouse for information on the religious experience in Kansas. In an effort to document the contemporary religious experience in Kansas, I began an initiative to archive the websites of Kansas-based religious organizations. I represent the lone arranger, shoestring-budget contingent who have nevertheless heard the siren call of web archiving and are endeavoring to learn all they can about this area of digital preservation. To the role of web liaison, I bring several years of experience developing and managing the website of the KU Religious Studies department, and the consummate desire to fulfill the information needs of others.

 

Scott Reed

I have three years experience working in web archiving in the realm of the Archive-It, I have had wide exposure to the field including assisting many members in the round table with their work and collaborating with a variety of institutions around the country. I am also a member of the Society of California Archivists, and have attended a variety of archives related conferences in the US and abroad giving me insight into the challenges and successes in the web archiving field beyond Archive-It. In addition, I have been responsible for the past two years in managing Archive-It’s social media and website presence, including the Archive-It blog. I am very comfortable with web publishing and I think I could serve well in this role. At the end of July, I will be leaving my position at Archive-It to start the graduate program in Information Studies at UCLA where I will continue learning and working in the realm of digital preservation. I hope to stay connected to the web archiving community and the Society of American Archivists, and in addition I intend to engage in broader conversations about the future of capture, access, and preservation of web content. Serving the web archiving community as part of the Web Archiving Round Table would be an excellent opportunity.

 

Social Media Manager candidates

Rose Chiango

In August I will complete my degree at the University of Pittsburgh in Archives and Information Science, and afterwards, I plan to continue developing my interest in born-digital records, web archives, and the preservation of social media networks.

Having previously served on two non-profit boards, as well as on multiple committees within institutions where I have worked, I am comfortable collaborating in a group and working independently to complete tasks. I managed social media, organized a website redesign, and was chair of the marketing and publicity committee for a community organization. As the co-president of our student chapter of SAA, I would like to continue to be involved in SAA by participating in Steering Committee activities and managing social media for the Web Archiving Roundtable.

 

Calvin Rydbom

I am vice president of Pursue Posterity, an archiving firm located in Cleveland, Ohio. Web Archiving is part of our profession I feel is quickly growing in relevance. Especially as in a previous life I managed websites for small businesses that no longer exist. I run the social media aspects of Pursue Posterity, and am interested in new and emerging ways to get messages across. I have a M.A. in English from the University of Akron and a M.L.I.S. from Kent State University.

Meet the Web Archiving Roundtable candidates for 2014-2015!

Vice Chair/Chair Elect (select one)

Michael Paulmeno: Vice Chair/Chair Elect

Bio: Michael Paulmeno is currently an Electronic Services Librarian at Delta State University where he is responsible for computer maintenance, web development, Integrated Library System maintenance, and managing library electronic resources.  Originally from the New York City area, he graduated from the University at Albany, SUNY with a Master’s of Science in Information Science in August of 2012 and a Master’s of Arts in History in December 2012.  Prior to attending graduate school, Michael earned a Bachelor’s Degree in History from the University at Buffalo, SUNY in 2008.  His professional activity includes serving as a member of the Best Practices/Toolbox Committee and as Vice Chair of the Mississippi Sirsi Users Group.  Michael has been an active member in SAA since 2010 and presently resides in Cleveland, Mississippi.

Statement: As a Systems Librarian part of my job involves the creation of web content for both the Roberts-LaForge Library and the University Archives, management of electronic resources, and the Online Public Access Catalog.  Over the past year, I’ve worked to upgrade the systems used by the Roberts-LaForge Library with an eye towards streamlining workflows and future proofing the organization.  Thus my perspective is one informed not only by archival training, but by current trends in web development and information technology.  Presently I am completing a term as a member of the Best Practices/Toolbox Committee.  Serving the Web Archiving Roundtable has been a very rewarding experience and has inspired me to strive for a leadership position within this brand new organization.

Kate Stratton: Vice Chair/Chair Elect

She has previously served on the Steering Committee and Education Sub-committee of the Records Management Roundtable.

Statement: The web continues to assert and expand its prominence in the lives and business of records creators and is increasing by volume its share in the historical record. Web archiving, however, remains a growth area, both in terms of skills and technological readiness, for many institutions. As a result, I think the Web Archiving Roundtable has a vital role to play for the larger Society of American Archivists membership. I want to participate in the Roundtable’s leadership to connect Society of American Archivist members to the knowledge, tools, and innovative practices that exist (or can be built) within our community. Through active knowledge sharing and community engagement, I believe the Web Archiving Roundtable can help the profession step confidently into the emerging, but fundamental, archival work of the enduring web.
