Introducing Emma Carey our new Consulting Archivist

The Arnprior & McNab/Braeside Archives welcomes Emma Carey as our new Consulting Archivist, replacing our outgoing Archivist Laurie Dougherty.

Emma studied at McGill University where she received her MLIS in archival studies and comes to us with a solid theoretical foundation in archival practice. She was trained in best practices regarding arranging and describing collections using RAD, uploading records to online databases, planning and budgeting digitization projects and managing basic preservation and conservation of diverse collections. After her degree, she traveled to Scotland where she volunteered in the Archives and Collections at the Glasgow School of Art and at the National Library of Scotland. She is excited to use her experience to make a positive contribution to the Arnprior & McNab/Braeside Archives."
