Please join us in welcoming the newest member of the AAO team! We are thrilled that the AAO received funding through Library and Archives Canada's Documentary Heritage Communities Program to hire an Archeion Assistant. This new position started on July 4 and will involve travel throughout Ontario to provide member training in how to use Archeion. It builds on the Advancing Archeion project that was initiated in January 2016 with the hiring of our first Archeion Assistant, Emily Chicorli. Her work has provided a guide for the second phase of the project, which will be completed by our new Archeion Assistant, Niloufar Ameli.
Niloufar graduated with an MA from Ryerson University’s Preservation and Collections Management in 2015 where she gained hands on knowledge of archival practices, specializing in the care of film and photography collections. Her Master’s thesis was on the selection and implementation of systems managing archival, library, and museum collections.
Niloufar currently works at Exhibition Place Records and Archives as a Records Clerk, and assists with the preservation of the audio visual collection at the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives as a Media Archivist Volunteer. She has previously worked at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Film Reference Library, and Exhibitions departments, the Archive of Modern Conflict, and the Archives of Ontario.
Congratulations on the new position, Niloufar! You will have opportunities to meet many of our members as you travel throughout Ontario.
Niloufar can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
