University Archivist

julia-corrinJulia Corrin has joined Carnegie Mellon University Libraries as the University Archivist, responsible for the administration and management of Carnegie Mellon University Archives, located in Hunt Library. The University Archives collects and preserves records and personal papers of historical or administrative importance to the university, generated by faculty, academic departments, administrative offices or campus organizations, and makes them available for reference and research. “Julia’s experience with the preservation of digital records will move the University Archives forward as we continue to acquire, manage and preserve at-risk born-digital materials generated by our academic community,” said Director of Scholarly Publishing, Archives and Data Services Gabrielle Michalek. Corrin comes to Pittsburgh from Arkansas State University, where she was the Political Collections Archivist. She holds a BA in American Studies from Carleton College, and an MS in Information, Archives and Records Management from the University of Michigan. Corrin succeeds Patrick Trembeth, who had a one-year temporary appointment.
