In November 2014, the faculty and staff of the Calvin T. Ryan Library were pleased to welcome Sally Sinor to the position of Project Archivist for the Alice Paine Room. In this position, Sally will be processing the Archives and Special Collections held by the University of Nebraska at Kearney in
order to provide students and researchers better access to the primary source materials. She holds a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science with a specialization in Archives from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.
Laurinda and Sally are the first professionally trained Archivists to hold positions at the Library. Their combined expertise will help in the collection, organization and preservation of the irreplaceable materials that tell the story of the institution that is now UNK. Their work will establish the UNK Archives and Special Collections as an accessible, working resource for UNK students, faculty and the broader community.
