Heather L. Barnes
Greetings :) I am a library and information science graduate student at UNC. I currently live in Carrboro, NC, a small, creative town that shares a border with Chapel Hill.
A bit about me:
In August, 2006, I began graduate studies at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill's School of Information & Library Science. My primary interests include archives and digital libraries, particularly cultural heritage collections (oral history, audio, and video). I am currently in my final semester of the program, and finishing field experiences at Wilson Library (UNC) and Duke University's RBMSCL.
In 2007, I worked with a film digitization project, Folkstreams -- an excellent folklore film resource. I also am a Research Assistant for Dr. Helen R. Tibbo on a grant-funded project called the National Historical Publications and Records Commission's Electronic Records Research Fellowships.
Since graduating from Smith College in 1997, I've worked for research organizations, IT companies, bookstores, and nonprofits, with a few government agencies along the way. Prior to attending UNC, I worked for a literary magazine in Chapel Hill called The Sun.
