Dr. Denise Anthony will join the faculty of the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on January 1, 2013 as lecturer. Anthony joins SILS from the University of Denver’s Library and Information Science where she taught for seven years, most recently as the lead faculty for Archives and Special Collections.
“We are delighted to have Denise join the SILS family,” said Dr. Gary Marchionini, dean and Cary C. Boshamer Distinguished Professor. “She brings teaching experience, and also practical experience of working with archives and historical collections.”
Anthony received her undergraduate degree in biochemistry at Michigan State University, after which she worked for a pharmaceutical company for several years before returning to school. She obtained her Master’s in Library Science and Ph.D. from the School of Information at the University of Michigan. It was during those academic years, she gained extensive practical experience working at the Michigan State University Archives and Historical Collections, consulting for the State Archives of Michigan and acting as coordinator for University of Michigan students tasked with processing and describing the records of the Pan Africanist Congress, which are held at the University of Fort Hare, South Africa.
