Catherine McIntyre is the University Archivist and Digitization Librarian at Fulton Library & George Sutherland Archives at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah. She started as a Reference Librarian there in 1997 and then created the school’s first archive and digitization program in 2004. She hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Utah and a Masters of Library Science degree from BYU. Her love of travel is what got her interested in history and, after receiving her BA degree, she taught high school for three years. When she decided she would go back to school for an advanced degree, the BYU Library Science program attracted her, since she was interested in so many topics, and she liked the idea of working with college-age students and faculty.
