This past June, the WSSU Archives was fortunate to be awarded a LSTA grant through the State of North Carolina. The grant will fund a project to digitize and make available the entirety of the WSSU University Photograph Collection. A major part of this process will be creating original metadata to make the images searchable. Olivia will be responsible for creating the metadata for the project. Below is a brief message from Olivia introducing herself.
Hello, my name is Olivia Carteaux and I am the new Digital Program Specialist in Library Services at the WSSU Archives. I've been in NC since 1998, and in Greensboro since 2009, recently graduating with my MLIS from UNCG in 2014. I have worked in an audiovisual archive and have done some work with manuscripts, and look forward to adding photographs to the list, and learning about WSSU and Winston-Salem in the process sounds pretty all around fantastic to me. Aside from archives, non-commercial radio is my passion (I was GM of WUAG in Greensboro for 2 years), so I am also looking forward to getting acquainted with WSNC 90.1 FM.
Stay posted from updates on the project as we will be asking for the public's help in identifying many of the images that we are digitizing.
