Mēgan A Oliver

Digital Collections Curator

Greetings,

I’m your campus curator of digital collections.   I oversee the analog-to-digital conversion of archival collections, especially senior projects (1973-2010) and the Library’s 35mm slide collection.  Once converted, cataloged, and digitally published, both serve as excellent scholarly resources for teaching or research. 

My office, the Digital Collections Center, is located in the Library on the first floor, nested in the Digital Media Zone (DMZ). Please call or email if you have any questions about my work.
