The Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) is pleased to announce that Dane
Flansburgh has been hired as Assistant Archivist. Dane joined SCRC in August of 2016 as Temporary Project Archivist processing the Crusade for Opportunity Records and the records of Chancellor William P. Tolley. Prior to joining SCRC he was Project Archivist at the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY where he processed the records of the Atari Coin-op Division. This project, comprising 600 linear feet, was completed in only 18 months and resulted in a presentation at the New York Archives Conference, “Processing Colossal Acquisitions with a Small Staff; Or, What to Do After a Semi-Trailer Shows Up at Your Loading Dock.” Dane has a B.A. in History from LeMoyne College and an MLIS from the University of Pittsburgh, with a specialization in Archives, Preservation, and Records Management.
We are delighted to welcome him as a permanent member of SCRC staff.
