About the Presenter:
Archivist Lisa Lobdell has had a life-long interest in preserving and organizing things dating back to her childhood when she used rainy days to reorganize her coloring books and games. She worked in banking, manufacturing, and property management prior to returning to her first love. She joined the Great American Songbook Foundation in May 2010 after completing her graduate degrees in library science and history.
Since joining the Songbook Foundation, she has moved the collections twice, provided input on the design of office space, and serves as both head librarian and museum curator along with her archival duties. Today she oversees a team of volunteers and interns who work to make all of our collections accessible in a variety of ways to our user community.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her four grown children, grandchildren and friends, preferably outdoors.
