Nicole Vallières joined the McCord team in 1989. Since the start of her term, she has established a computerized collections management service, supervised the digitalization of the Museum's collections, and set up an on-line database of some 20,000 photographic documents. Since 1995, she has been Director of the Collections and Information Management division, and among her responsibilities is management of the "Laurier Project", a three-year project recently funded by the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council that focuses on the development of curriculum-linked teaching resources drawn from the Museum's collections. Active in the provincial museum community for many years, she has contributed towards the development of the Quebec-wide museum network Info-Muse, both as a founding member (1990) and as its president (1995 to 1998). She sits on a number of national and international professional committees, including the scientific committee for the "Rencontres francophones - nouvelles technologies et institutions muséales" conferences, held in Dijon in 1998, Montreal in 1999 and Brussels in 2000. Nicole Vallières holds a diploma in computer studies, an M.A. in art history and a Ph.D. in ethnology from the Université Laval in Quebec City.
