Special Skills, Areas of Expertise, or Research Interests

I am currently working with the Digital Library of Georgia's grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to create a Civil Rights Digital Library. I catalog newsfilm clips from the WSB-TV newsfilm collection housed at the Walter J. Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection. I also assist with the aggregation of information about existing digital civil rights collections as part of a process to create a virtual library on the Civil Rights Movement.
