BCR Welcomes New Digital Initiatives Trainer



AURORA, Colo. - Anne Marie Lyons has joined BCR as digital initiatives
trainer, filling a newly created position in BCR Training & OCLC
Services. She also will be working with BCR's new Digital Preservation
Services division, expanding the digitization training opportunities
available to BCR members and others throughout the cultural heritage and
library communities. 

Of her new position, Lyons says, "Digital projects present different
challenges to different organizations. I'm very much looking forward to
working with archives, libraries, museums and cultural heritage
organizations, and exploring how digitization practices can be adapted
to each organization's individual needs so they have new opportunities
to share their wonderful collections with the rest of world."

Before joining BCR, Lyons worked for National Public Radio and the
National Security Archive, Washington, D.C.  Her library experience
includes work at the Van Deusen Post Library, the Picatinny Arsenal and
Rutgers University, all in New Jersey. She earned her MLIS at Rutgers
and her BA in English at the College of Saint Elizabeth.

As digital initiatives trainer, Lyons will be conducting online and
in-person training in digital project planning, digital capture,
metadata schemas and digital preservation.  She has extensive experience
in training and digital practices, and as BCR's newest staff member, is
a valuable addition to both the expanding digitization and training
program and the BCR team.
