GVSU Library Scholars Program Faculty Mentor: Leigh Rupinski
I am the Archivist for Public Services and Community Engagement. I am interested in the “front facing” aspects of archival work, including (but not limited to!) instruction using archival materials, innovative outreach practices, building primary source literacy skills, creating exhibits, and improving accessibility to Special Collections & University Archives materials. I work with a wide range of disciplines, as just about every department could have a connection with archival materials!
My previous work experience includes working as the only archivist at a small private university, so I have experience in other aspects of archival workflow as well, including processing and digitization.
