Meg Langford, HC&A Public Services Coordinator

I’m very excited to share the news that OHSU Historical Collections & Archives has hired Meg Langford as our Public Services Coordinator. Meg brings us wide experience in special collections, in-depth practical and theoretical knowledge of public services issues, outstanding communication skills, and enthusiasm for working with the public. This new position for HC&A will bring more efficiency to our work in serving the public, and will strengthen our successful outreach work and public programming.

Meg has a record of progressively responsible experience in Portland State University's Special Collections & University Archives, beginning as a post-baccalaureate intern in a public history class,  where she worked with a student team to process and preserve a collection, prepare a finding aid, and curate an exhibit. From 2013-2014 she worked as Library Technician at PSU performing key public services and outreach activities in special collections, and completing a variety of archival projects. Later in 2014, she worked as Project Consultant for a digital exhibit and outreach program to celebrate PSU’s 65th anniversary. She brings experience in customer service, scheduling, event planning, and expense monitoring from her work as Operations Specialist for Animal Traffic, a Portland vintage and specialty retailer. Meg also comes to us with direct experience working with the OHSU community, through administrative work for the School of Nursing. 

Meg holds a B.A. in history from PSU, and has a strong interest in Russian history. She lives in Southeast Portland, has two cats, and loves karaoke.

Should you contact HC&A to ask a question about our collections, request photocopies or scans, or schedule a research visit, Meg will most likely be the friendly face of HC&A on the other end!
