Gumberg Library newsletters
While the Outreach & Communications Librarian at Gumberg Library, I created and oversaw an opt-in campus newsletter hosted on Mailchimp.
It reaches over 200 readers monthly and has an average 40% open rate with a 3% click rate. Most of the content are write-ups of news announcements in the library and upcoming events with recurring segments from colleagues focusing on research guides, information literacy, and digital resources.
You can view the Newsletters here. I created newsletters starting from 9/9/2016.

Promotional work for Goucher College Special Collections & Archives
During my employment at The Special Collections and Archives of Goucher College, I used both digital and physical media to expand the outreach of the collections. The Archives was located on the top floor of the newly built library, The Athenaeum, and was easy to overlook and engagement and promotion was conducted with little to no budget.
Additionally, I created and maintained a Tumblr page (currently archived but still accessible at http://archivedgouchersca.tumblr.com/) as a hub for information on our resources, collections, and upcoming events.
Goucher faculty, staff, and students interacted with the blog as well as external followers who would occasionally ask questions about our library.
At the time I was the Assistant to the Curator of Special Collections and Archives and managed 3 student library workers. Some of the content created was commissioned by me to our student workers who would digitize and write content for the blog, as seen in the post about the death threat letter.
During the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" I created a wordpress site "Pride & Prejudice": A 200 Year Affair for the Alberta Burke Jane Austen Collection exhibit that took place January - July 2013.
The site was used for digital access to some of our collection, events details, and information about the collection and its history at Goucher College.
