About My Website
Shout Outs...
 
Top 5 Things I’ve learned:
I would like to thank NYU Archivist Nancy Cricco and the helpful graduate student assistants, especially Karen Murphy.  Without your help this website would have turned out like an icky thump.
 
Prof Wosh, you went to great lengths to make this class interesting.  Thank you, even if I didn’t appreciate you locking down the computers in Bobst while we had class!
 
I would also like to thank the anonymous person in the Archives Department who put a post-it note on the bookcase indicating the aisle with the photocopier in it.  Without that post-it note, I would have walked past the copier many times.
1)  People who work in the archives aren’t boring.
2)  Although my mom has made fun of me for taking this course, archiving is a serious and important way for us to preserve the past.
3)  Ms. Cricco goes on lots of trips.
4)  If you want to get people’s attention, take away the internet.
5)  If you are bored, check out the website www.archive.org.  You can look at websites from years ago and make fun of the cheesy color schemes and photos.
