“My profession faces the twin challenges of preserving the records of today and making them accessible for tomorrow. As an archivist, I must be equally adept working with decades old materials and electronic records created just last week.

“Philosophy sharpened my critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which allows me to recognize various perspectives and potential solutions when faced with complicated issues in the workplace.”
