Meet the 2016 SALALM Conference Scholarship Winners: Hannivett Nabahe

Portrait of Hannivett Nabahe

Hannivett (Hanni) Nabahe is completing her Master’s of Library and Information Science with a concentration in Digital Information Management and a graduate certificate in Archival Studies at the University of Arizona. As a Knowledge River Scholar, she is committed to serving the information needs of Latino and Indigenous peoples, to fostering an understanding of information issues from the perspective of these communities, and to advocating for culturally sensitive information services in both libraries and archives.

Originally from Veracruz, Mexico, Hanni started her career eight years ago in the Pima County Public Library system, where she continues to serve as a library instructor. Since the start of her graduate studies, Hanni has had the chance to work at the University of Arizona Special Collections, first as a graduate assistant and, for the past year, as an ARL/SAA Mosaic Scholar. Her projects have included processing manuscript and born-digital Borderlands collections with extensive Spanish content, translating their first finding aids available in Spanish, and collaborating on a pilot project that hopes to create a sustainable way to provide bilingual access points by bringing together archivists and translators-in-training. A former copresident of the University of Arizona Chapter of the American Indian Library Association, she assisted the director of the Old Pascua Yaqui Museum and Cultural Center in developing a disaster plan and is currently working on a digital preservation plan for the museum’s audiovisual materials.

Last summer, Hanni worked at UC San Diego’s Special Collections and Archives as an ARL Career Enhancement Fellow and attended the Archival Education and Research Institute as an Emerging Archival Scholar. The summer before that, she attended the American Indian Language Development Institute, focusing on Tohono O’odham linguistics and learning to develop mobile apps for use in indigenous language revitalization. Hanni holds a Bachelor of Arts in English with a focus on Multicultural Literature from Brigham Young University, where she also studied Portuguese for two years, immersed in the language while living in BYU’s renowned language houses.

After her graduation this May, Hanni will spend the summer preparing for the Academy of Certified Archivists examination, presenting at the National Diversity in Libraries and the Society of American Archivists conferences, as well as attending the IFLA World Library and Information Congress as a Congress Fellow. In the fall, Hanni will join the University of Arizona’s Eller School of Business to pursue a Master’s of Business Administration.
