CDI to Present Local History Resources on TV This Thursday

Published: February 23, 2010 by Robin M. Katz

Mark your calendars!

Live at 5:25 - Thursday, February 25, 2010 - Channel 17

The CDI will share some of its excellent local history resources with the audience of Preservation Burlington's "Live at 5:25." Outreach Librarian Robin Katz will be joined by two UVM Libraries staff members who have helped create CDI collections.

Mary Van Buren-Swasey of the Cataloging department uses her local history expertise to create rich museum-level descriptive records for the ongoing additions to the McAllister photograph collection. Dan DeSanto, a staff member in Reference and Instruction and a recent graduate of the University of Alabama's School of Library and Information Science, is currently working on our forthcoming collection of Long Trail photographs.

Robin, Mary and Dan will highlight collection materials, share anecdotes about the research involved in digital collection production, and invite viewers to further explore the CDI.

Update: Watch the Video Online

See how the CDI was mentioned on a previous "Live at 5:25" show entitled "Researching Your Old House" and featuring historian and museum consultant Erica Donnis.
