Samantha O’Brien

Studio Archivist

Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates

As the Studio Archivist at Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, Samantha manages the art used by thousands of licensees to create the many various products that feature the beloved Peanuts characters.  Being the sole archivist for the studio means that her role includes brand management, metadata and taxonomy development, access and security management, and everything in between.

She has 15 years of experience as an information specialist, including archivist for a Fortune 50 company, and has managed several migrations between DAM platforms.

A true cataloger at heart, the description of visual materials has been a lifelong passion. The primary goal of her work is to enable access to cultural treasures while preserving them for future generations.
