NATCHITOCHES – Sharon Wolff, Northwestern State University’s Assistant Archivist at the Cammie G. Henry Research Center in Watson Library, has earned her status as a Certified Archivist after sitting for the exam given by the Academy of Certified Archivists. The Academy of Certified Archivists is a nationwide, independent organization founded in 1989 that certifies professional archivists.
To be accepted for the certification exam, archivists must meet requirements of experience and education. Once they have qualified, archivists must pass the certification test in order to become a full-fledged member of the Academy.
Wolff is originally from New York state and earned her undergraduate degree in Information Science at the State University of New York at Albany. She earned her master’s degree in Information Science with concentration in Archives and Records Administration, at the same institution a year after completing her bachelor’s degree. She began work at NSU last September.
Wolff said she is delighted to have passed the ACA requirements and looks forward to her future career as a Certified Archivist.
