We are proud to welcome Leah Loscutoff, Archivist and Special Collection Librarian at the Samuel C. Williams Library, as our guest speaker.  Leah will speak about her efforts to preserve the Library’s Special Collections, which include Stevens family documents, archives of Stevens Institute of Technology, paraphernalia of the history of Hoboken, and the Leonardo da Vinci collection.

Leah previously worked at the Brooklyn Historical Society, where she served as the Digitization Archivist and Project Education Coordinator. In this position she supervised the creation of the Brooklyn Visual Heritage website, a collaborative project among the historical society, the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Public Library and the Pratt School of Information and Library Science. Prior to that, Leah processed the Woodlawn Cemetery archive for the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts library at Columbia University. She has also held archivist positions at the University of California, Irvine, and the National Park Service in San Francisco.

Originally from California, Leah received her Masters of Library and Information Science, with a concentration in Archives and Records Management, from San Jose State University in 2008, and her B.A. in History from San Francisco State University.
