Archivist Liaison | jbarr@history.pcusa.org

As the Archivist Liaison, Jenny worked with CCP instructors to select collection materials to support course curricula, assembled primary and secondary sources into source sets for students to use for their research projects, organized class visits to PHS, scheduled individual student visits, and supported students during their research visits to the PHS reading room. Jenny served as the main connection between the archives and CCP students and teachers. At PHS, Jenny is a member of the Public Services staff, and in that role she assists visiting researchers in the reading room and replies to remote reference inquiries. One of her areas of interest is Presbyterian mission work in Asia, especially China. Jenny created a subject guide to PHS collections about medical mission work in China and recently led a "PHS Live" webinar on PHS’s China mission holdings.
