Martha Tenney

I hold a Master's in Information Science with a concentration in Digital Archives, and my undergraduate degree is in Sociology. My research interests include online communities and Web archiving, artists' archives, and human rights archives. My specialty at Barnard is American Studies, but I am happy to help with any research questions--particularly those related to primary source research and/or online archival resources.

To book a consultation, email me at My hours are generally M-F, 10am-6pm; see my calendar for available times:
