Hello!
My name is Marian Matyn (pronounced May’-tin). I’m the bibliographer or reference librarian for the History Dept. I’m happy to help you find resources for History class research projects and papers.

I earned a M.A. in history from CMU. From the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor I earned a M.I.L.S. with a concentration in Archival Administration, and a B.A. in history. Primary sources and archives rock my world! I love a wide range of history- and information-related topics. At CMU I teach HST 583 Archives Administration and LIB 197. I also train and supervise student employees, interns, and independent study students in archives processing and description. Below my contact information is a select list of my publications and presentations. I am an active member of SAA, AMIA, MAC, MARAC, and MAA.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
