Listen to this month’s episode to hear about one of the many paths one can take to enter the field of librarianship. Sometimes, it takes being accepted into an English PhD program to know that it’s not the right degree for you! Also, what’s more appropriate than a podcast about archiving baseball than during the beginning of baseball season? Enjoy!
On this month’s episode, we hear from Tom Blake, the Content Discovery Manager at the Boston Public Library. This episode concludes season 3 and marks Elizabeth’s first time as host!
Tom came to the BPL from the Massachusetts Historical Society, where he was involved in several digital projects including the online version of the diaries of John Quincy Adams. He also served as a photographer and imaging specialist for nine years at Boston Photo Imaging and as an archives assistant at the MIT Special Collections and Archives. Tom holds a BFA in Professional Photographic Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and an MS in Library and Information Science with a concentration in Archives Management from Simmons College. Join us as we discuss creating digital objects, the Digital Commonwealth Repository, and the future of librarianship.
