Jennifer Hecker


I’m Jennifer and I’m an archivist! More specifically, I’m a manuscript archivist specializing in processing large collections of literary and personal papers including the Norman Mailer Papers, the David Mamet Papers and the Morris L. Ernst Papers, all at the Harry Ransom Center, and the Richard W. Pound Olympic Collection at the University of Texas Libraries. Currently, I use that experience to help inform the development of digital scholarship strategies at UT Libraries. I also direct the work of the Austin Fanzine Project and the Austin Music Documentation Initiative. Right now, I’m into crowd-sourcing and metadata aggregation, zine librarianship, and documenting Austin music history. Sometimes I make things or do art stuff.
