About Shannon:

I am a recent graduate from the MLIS program at the University of Wisconsion- Milwaukee, with a concentration in Archival Science and a special focus on audiovisual archiving.  However, new to the field, I am working on a year-long moving image digitization project at the Country Music Hall of Fame, as well as pioneered many other photographic and moving images projects at my former employers.  In graduate school at UW- Milawaukee, I served a duel position as the President and Treasurer of their SAA Student Chapter, as well as I am an active board member and chair for many local organizations.

I would love to serve as Vice-Chair/ Chair-Elect of this Roundtable, as I want to be more active in SAA at a professional level, and I want to bring new ideas and events to the Roundtable for the future!  My enthusiasm and knowledge of visual materials and cataloging will certainly prove to be very beneficial to the committee and members.
