Archivist and Scholarly Communications Librarian
As the Archivist & Scholarly Communications Librarian at SUNY Maritime College, Annie Tummino immerses herself in maritime special collections and advocates for Open Access while working in a historic fort by the sea.
Prior to joining the Maritime library faculty in 2016, Annie worked in a variety of New York based libraries, archives and museums, including Columbia University, Museum of the City of New York, Queens Museum, Metropolitan New York Library Council, Brooklyn College, Queens College, and the Department of Environmental Protection Archive. She received her Master of Library and Information Studies and Archives Certificate from Queens College in December, 2010.
Annie is also a social justice and feminist organizer, working with groups such as National Women’s Liberation and the Redstockings Archives for Action. She was lead plaintiff in the lawsuit, Tummino v. Hamburg, that successfully made emergency contraception available to women and girls of all ages over-the-counter.
Annie received her BA in Women’s Studies and Social Thought & Political Economy from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2002, and spent five years working in the women’s health field before attending library school.
