Hello, I am Rebecca E. “Becky” Briggs. I earned my Master of Science in Information Sciences and my Bachelor of Science in Communications at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. I currently work at the University of Tennessee Libraries Special Collections. My interests include:
- Archives & Records Management — acquisitions & accessions, arrangement, description, digital & traditional preservation, reference
- Metadata & Cataloging — archival cataloging & metadata; cataloging print, analog & digital media; learning and applying new metadata & cataloging standards
- Information Technologies –Web design & management; digital obsolescence; intellectual freedom regarding digital media; copyright law regarding Web-based content & digital collections
My hobbies can be described based on what I have written on some of my social media profiles: I am a sporadic writer, a casual crafty artist, an unabashed nerd, and an always experimenting cook. I also enjoy gardening, reading (even if it is just articles on the Web), and finding bits and pieces of genealogy/family history.
