Daniel Hartwig will join SULAIR's Department of Special Collections & University Archives as Stanford University Archivist. He will begin his new assignment on September 6, 2010. I hope that you will join Roberto and me in welcoming him to Stanford.
Daniel joins us from Yale University Archives, where he has served as Records Services Archivist since 2006. In that position he was responsible for analysis and appraisal of the information holdings of Yale offices, and acted as the primary point of contact between University Archives and the rest of Yale. In later years, he also took on systems administration responsibilities, collection management responsibilities, and supervision of accessioning staff. Daniel has also spent time at Ball State Libraries and with the Wisconsin Historical Society, and holds an MLIS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an MA in History and Philosophy of Science from Indiana University, and a BA from the University of Iowa.
Daniel has twice presented at the Society of American Archivists Annual Conference, once in 2007 on the topic “Ingest of university electronic records: Theory & Practice,” and again in 2008 on the topic “Pre-Custodial Intervention and Institutional Repositories”. He has also been an active blogger, and you can read his postings at http://atatyale.blogspot.com.
As we welcome Daniel, a note of thanks is also in order for Aimee Morgan, who has taken on additional responsibility while the University Archivist position has been open. Aimee will continue in her position as Assistant University Archivist, and will work closely with Daniel.
