Hannah Hemphill is a native of North Carolina, growing up in Julian beside the cows of Homeland Creamery. She is pursuing her MLIS at UNC Greensboro and plans to graduate in May 2018. She has focused her studies, internships, and extracurriculars on archives, special collections, and outreach. Hannah loves the idea of connecting communities with their history and increasing the visibility of these resources.
Caitlin Rivas is a first year graduate student at the UNC School of Information and Library Science, as well as a research assistant in the North Carolina Collection at the Wilson Special Collections Library. She is concentrating her studies on Archives and Records Management with a focus on community archives. A native of Richmond, VA, she received her B.A. in English from the University of Virginia in 2014. When she's not working or studying, Caitlin loves sampling North Carolina’s superior barbecue, exploring local breweries, and running (and occasionally doing all three at the same time).
