I'm Margot Note and I'm passionate about information.
In my consulting practice, I help individuals and organizations harness their history.
To provide clarity to complex problems, I offer the reference assistance of a librarian, the organizing expertise of an archivist, and the intellectual curiosity of a historian.
I facilitate archives and records management projects, suggesting ways to use collections to connect with people.
