My background is in teaching and library management, especially in the realms of documentary heritage - manuscripts and archives, photographs, rare books, ephemera. I have maintained a strong imperative to make documentary content accessible online and to undertake collaborative projects with other institutions.
Recent manifestations of my project work include digitisation of New Zealand troopship magazines for World War One and institutional annual reports, content for the New Zealand service personnel database named Cenotaph, and arrangement and description of a major private archive.
I am now using the range of skills and knowledge developed through this library career to manage archives, edit, proofread, organise data and research.
I would be especially interested to assist with research, writing and/or editing family history publications.
