Raymond Frohlich comes to HSP from New York University

The Historical Society of Pennsylvania recently hired Raymond Frohlich as Director of Information Technology, a newly created position that will help HSP improve and enhance its use of technology. Frohlich has a masters degree from New York University and most recently worked as the Systems Manager for the Division of Libraries at New York University.

“There is an understanding at HSP that increased investment in technology will play a key role in the organization’s future success,” Frohlich said. “In this new position, I will focus my energies on opening up our amazing collections to a growing online audience.”

Frohlich joined HSP’s senior staff in February. He will manage all technology-related tasks and will be responsible for selecting, installing, and managing integrated information systems hardware and software, including library system software, digital asset management software, fundraising and accounting software, Windows networking, digital mass storage, and peripherals for HSP’s overall operations. Frohlich will oversee HSP’s Web site, the large-scale redesign of the site, and the addition of an online shop, as well as provide technical guidance for HSP’s growing collection-digitization program.

Frohlich has a Master of Professional Studies in Interactive Telecommunications from New York University. Prior to coming to HSP, Frohlich worked as the Systems Manager for the Division of Libraries at New York University, the largest private university in the United States. In that position, he managed a team of systems administrators, database administrators, and business analysts who provided enterprise class web and business services to the NYU global community and a consortium of other New York City-based universities and institutions. Frohlich is also the founder of Internet start-up Frohlich Interactive, LLC, where he developed Yakima Station, an Internet application that offers real time assessment and analysis of all the people, places, and things generating buzz.
