It seems like I’m always glancing backwards…in time.
Hello, I’m Lisa Pasquinelli Rickey, MA, MLIS, CA.
I started this blog as part of a scripting course for my MLIS degree and decided to keep it as a place to blog about professional things. My professional interests include archives and manuscripts, libraries and library science, local history, genealogy, preservation, digitization, history, public history, oral history, photographs and photography, and anything else you can think of that amounts to “documenting and sharing the past.”
I am the archivist and one of the local history reference librarians at the Dayton Metro Library (Dayton, Ohio), a position I have held since 2008. This position involves processing manuscript and photograph collections, digitizing collections and making them available online, preserving and repairing materials, and serving at the local history reference desk. (Learn more about my professional work experience.)
I have a BA in History & Latin, BS in Info Technology, and an MA in public history (archival administration). I completed my Master of Library & Information Science (MLIS) in May 2011. (Learn more about my education.)
In my spare time, I am usually hanging out with my husband, Matt. We have 1 dog and no children. In the past few years, we have completed several major remodeling projects in our home. I also enjoy photography (check out my Flickr) and genealogy, and I dream about visiting Italy again soon.
Disclaimer: This blog is likely to contain entries pertaining to materials I find at work (both out of an interest or curiosity regarding the items themselves and an interest in promoting my institution and its collections). Even so, the statements and opinions posted here are mine alone and do not necessarily reflect the views or endorsements of my employer(s) or affiliations.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find interesting and/or useful information here, and please visit again. Questions and comments welcome!
