John Stoner's Professional and Research Interests

Table of Contents


My professional and research interests relate directly to my training as an historian, archivist, and librarian. I received my Master of Arts in History from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I did doctoral work and specialized in the history of California and the American West. In my studies at the School of Library and Information Studies (subsequently the School of Information Management Systems) at the University of California, Berkeley, where I received an M.LI.S., I focused on advanced reference tools and archival management.

As an archivist at the Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, I've had the opportunity to use my training in a wide range of projects, including the Department of Energy's Human Radiation Experiments Records Search Project, the Department's OpenNet database of recently declassified documents, as well as the electronic cataloging of the Laboratory's own research and development records for uploading onto the Research Libraries Group's database, RLIN (Research Libraries Information Network).

The "explosion" of the World Wide Web within the last year promises even greater access opportunities to those involved with history and archives, and is an exciting challenge to those of us in these fields.
