Eira Tansey

University of Cincinnati
Digital Archivist/Records Manager
Cincinnati, OH

Eira Tansey is the digital archivist and records manager at the University of Cincinnati's Archives and Rare Books Library. She has previously written about Cincinnati's public libraries, the visibility and compensation of archivist's labor, and the effects of climate change on archival practice. She is currently collaborating on a Society of American Archivists foundation grant to develop a comprehensive data set of American archives locations, in order to aid future spatial analysis of the field, and researching environmental regulatory recordkeeping. 

Her talk is titled "The Necessary Knowledge," and will focus on the critical role that environmental information plays in environmental protection, drawing on stories from the last century of Pittsburgh's environmental history.
