Eira Tansey is the Digital Archivist/Records Manager at the University of Cincinnati Libraries. Her active areas of research include the effects of climate change on archives and archivists, the role of records within environmental regulation, and the enforcement of recordkeeping laws. Between 2017-2018, Tansey collaborated on a Society of American Archivists foundation grant to develop a modern comprehensive data set of United States archives locations.
