Nicole and Nick's slides

Archivists Jillian Cuellar (Tamiment Library) and Nicole Martin (Democracy Now!) and IT Director Nick Gilla (Democracy Now!) will give instruction on archiving principles and techniques for physical and digital materials. This skillshare will be appropriate for individuals and groups interested in preserving their documents and media.

Jillian Cuellar received her B.A. in English from the University of Texas at Austin prior to earning her Master in Library and Information Science from Pratt Institute with a certificate in Archival Studies. She is the Processing Archivist for the Communist Party, USA records at the Tamiment Library at New York University.

Nick Gilla is a recent migrant to NYC from Baltimore, and before that, Texas. Good information management is his obsession, and computers make it happen (when instructed well). When computers get frustrating, he helps out infoshops, organizes with the Industrial Workers of the World and gets the word out on the complexities and injustices in Palestine. Working with Democracy Now!, Nick believes he can help build a free media in the U.S., and thus a step toward real democracy here.

Raised by orderly folk in Nevada City, California, Nicole Martin became interested in archiving and preservation while studying early cinema at the University of California, Santa Cruz. With a degree in Film and Digital Media, Nicole began working for Apple Computer and making digital art mixing live webcasts with anachronistic analog sources, particularly Super 8 film. As a coordinator at the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Brooklyn, Nicole came to appreciate the many ways in which preservation work enriches community while deepening and influencing the telling of history. She has also worked with the the Brooklyn Public Library, Anthology Film Archives, The Standby Program and the Museum of the Moving Image, and holds a Master's degree in Moving Image Archiving and Preservation from New York University.

Introduced/facilitated, doing her best to stay the hell out of it and let the speakers do their thing by Jenna Freedman of Radical Reference.
