I'm Rachel Poppen, a Master of Science in Information Studies candidate at The University of Texas at Austin.

I will graduate in May 2023 with Endorsements of Specialization in Collections Management and Preservation and Leadership, Management, and Governance. I am passionate about leverging modern technology to ethically increase access to and preservation of special and rare collections, especially in rural areas. When I'm not in class or working at one of the UT repositories, you can find me bookbinding, taking a hike, or on the hunt for the best taco in Austin.
