Tara Murray: an expert in making resources available online

Tara Murray is the Librarian and Director of Information Services for the American Philatelic Research Library. She manages the library’s operations and collections and leads digitization projects.

Jane King Fohn was interested in making her gold and grand award-winning exhibit, The 9-cent Alamo Stamp and its First Day Covers, available to a wider audience. A display in the American Philatelic Center would only reach the limited audience of those who can make the trip to Bellefonte and wouldn’t be permanent, so I suggested that Jane lend us her exhibit for scanning. When she agreed and sent us the exhibit, we scanned it and added the digital copy to the library collection. It is now accessible through the library catalog and the APS online exhibit collection.

  1. ANYONE who has ever truly felt the limitations of knowledge nessary to fully understand the intracacies that surrounds each square inch of each stamp intrusted to our individual collections, can only feel thrilled at efforts such as yours . As a 4th generation member, the full
    Impact of initiatives such as this, seminal to the survival of our society.

  2. My only criticism, would be the lack of a link ( Wendy ) to contribute, instantly as a expression of my appreciation.
