    Hello,
    My name is Beth, and I am the incoming chair for the Core Digital Conversion IG. First, I would like to extend my thanks to Faye Mazzia for her leadership through the first year of CORE, as well as Jenny Levine for guiding my onboarding process.

    A little about myself... I am the Digital Collections Management Librarian at Penn State University Libraries, and I am located at the University Park campus in the middle of Pennsylvania. My day-to-day responsibilities include overseeing the Libraries' Digital Collections, as well as the PA Newspaper Archive. I coordinate the workflows of the various digital project streams, including vended services and on-site imaging at University Park and other campuses. Outside of the library, I love going on walks with my dog and cooking with my spouse.

    Last year, I participated in the CORE IG Week program and the expertise among the presenters was inspiring and informative. I hope that members of the CORE Digital Conversion IG continue to learn, collaborate and feel valued within this community.

    Please feel free to introduce yourselves via this thread. Also, members welcome to participate in our community discussions whenever you wish. I plan to share questions, projects, articles, and upcoming events as often as I can.

    Thanks for you time, and I look forward to chatting with you soon!
    -Beth
