tylerchawner.jpgTyler is a practicum student from the University of Alberta’s School of Library and Information Studies. He has a BA in History and minor in Museum Studies from Texas A&M University, and is in the process of completing a MLIS degree at the University of Alberta. His practicum revolves around the archival processes involved in collection management.

Tyler’s work will involve processing the Ukrainian Diaspora Composers Collection and the Danny Evanishen Collection. He will be responsible for creating an easily accessible and understandable online record of the collections through the archival database AtoM. Through this, Tyler hopes to deepen his knowledge of the inner workings of archives while simultaneously helping further the Kule Folklore Centre’s mission.
