From 12:00 to 1:30-ish on Wednesday, November 29th (in 4209 Posvar), students will have the opportunity to have lunch with Sierra Green, an archivist at the Heinz History Center. In an informal discussion over lunch Sierra will talk about her career path so far, trends she sees in the fields of archival and museum work, and suggestions she’d offer students who are interested in eventually pursuing grad programs and jobs in her field. A brief bio: A native of Adamsville, Pennsylvania, Sierra Green completed her Masters in Library and Information Science with a specialization in Archives, Preservation, and Records Management from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012. As an archivist at the Heinz History Center’s Detre Library & Archives, Sierra is engaged in archival processing and reference services in addition to her work in public and educational programming. Throughout her graduate and professional work thus far, Sierra has fostered a deep passion for and interest in archival outreach, engagement, and public awareness. She takes great pleasure in spreading the word about archival collections and the work of archivists within a museum environment.
