Jey Wann is Oregon Documents Coordinator at the State Library of Oregon,
where she has worked for a long time. Please download and read her latest
article, “The Hunt for Digital Oregon Documents: Building and Populating
the Oregon Government Publications Digital Collection,” here:
>From Jey’s article, “Collecting digital publications takes planning, hard
work, and attention to detail. But it also can be fun. We never know what
we’ll encounter, whether reviewing born-digital documents or digitizing
historic documents from our collection. From the State Fire Marshal’s
recent Sasquatch stand-up character (you can dress him in various
fire-safety outfits) to Depression-era scrip, the collection is full of
surprises. Digitization Specialist Kate Anderson, a Western Oregon
University alum, was surprised and amused by rules for women students at
her alma mater in 1925."
Jey particularly enjoys imagining researchers in the future finding just
the right publication, partly due to what she does. When not immersed in
the world of state government publishing, she enjoys reading, baking,
gardening, walking and bicycling, performing early music, and chocolate.
Activities that combine more than one of these are a bonus!
