Biography: 


Bonner is a native Detroiter who became interested in history at an early age. Bonner initially decided to become a teacher but a position as a library student worker inspired her to pursue librarianship. Eventually, Bonner learned she could connect her love for history and librarianship into one career through archives. The rest is history. Currently, she is responsible for arranging, describing, accessioning and re-boxing manuscript collections. After a collection is physically processed, she writes a finding aid for each collection. A finding aid is a guide that describes the collection and its' creator(s),  historical background and significance, the contents of each box and folder, restrictions (if there are any) and gives instructions of how a patron can access the collection. Bonner is interested in exploring the collections at the ASU Library as a means to learn more about history, uncover hidden stories , and is open to collaboration.
