Episode 19: Sylvie Rollason-Cass, Web Archivist at Archive-It

Image of Sylvie Rollason-CassNovember’s episode features Sylvie Rollason-Cass, a Web Archivist at Archive-It. Tune in to learn about what it’s like to archive the Internet and the difference between curating digital versus physical objects. Plus, how keeping an open mind can lead down exciting, unexpected career paths. Thank you so much for listening and your continued support of this project!

Sylvie got her first library job in the Special Collections and Archives department at the University of Illinois at Chicago while she was working toward her BA in Anthropology. Later, while working as a library assistant at the Newberry Library in Chicago, she decided to take the plunge and move to central Illinois to get her MSLIS with a certificate in special collections from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After 3 years of working with physical archives and rare books, she’s still not quite sure how she ended up on the front lines of web archiving, but she’s thrilled to be there.
