Charlotte's role in the library

My role as the Cabrinety Project Assistant involves working with NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) on a grant-funded project to digitize the software portion of the Stephen M. Cabrinety Collection in the History of Microcomputing, ca. 1975-1995. I re-process, register, catalog, and help prep digital materials for accessioning into the Stanford Digital Repository.

More about Charlotte

I worked for a video game magazine called Tips & Tricks that spun out from another video game magazine called VideoGames & Computer Entertainment. VG & CE still has its wikipedia page (, but the Tips & Tricks wikipedia page has sadly been deleted. Yet another of the many reasons I am interested in archiving the history of video games at an institutional level.
