The Archive of Recorded Sound welcomes Gurudarshan Khalsa

December 13, 2017

The Stanford Archive of Recorded Sound is pleased to announce the appointment of Gurudarshan Khalsa as Project Archivist for 2018. Gurudarshan will be processing the Strong Museum Collection, the Richard Howe Collection of Musical Instrument Literature, a portion of the Robert Baxter Collection, and also several small collections in the Archive of Recorded Sound. He will also create finding aids that will make these collections accessible to the public.

Gurudarshan comes to us from Stanford Libraries Special Collections, where he has worked on several projects, including the Bob Fitch Photography Archive, for which he arranged, described and created metadata for digitized and born-digital material, Road & Track Magazine, for which he rehoused materials and updated metadata, the William Hewlett papers, and the Gordon Moore Project. Gurudarshan holds an MLS degree with Archives Concentration from Simmons College and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Oregon. Gurudarshan’s experience with a wide variety of paper materials, digitized materials, and born-digital items will be highly valuable to his work with ARS collections. We are very happy to welcome Gurudarshan to the staff of the Archive of Recorded Sound.
