About

This is a blog related to my work at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, MN. I am the director of digital collections and imaging for this institution, which works to preserve handwritten manuscripts around the world using photographic techniques. In the past, this was accomplished using microfilm; today, digital photography is used.

I came to this position in an indirect way. For twenty years, I worked as a commercial photographer, first with traditional film and later using digital technologies. In working with digital photography and prepress work, I became skilled at retouching digital images. I also developed skills in website work, database management, and other things that have helped me considerably in my present position.

At HMML, I manage several websites, work with a number of online databases, and produce images for publications.
