Bio - Judy Grimsley
Chief Curator and Archivist
For 25 years, Judy Grimsley was the chief librarian of The Orlando Sentinel, where she oversaw “the morgue’s” transition from a newspaper clippings service to a digital archive and research center. Judy knew keywords before keywords were cool, having helped develop the industry standards for electronic libraries. She was a founding member of the Florida News Librarians Association and an active member of Special Libraries Association, News Division. In 2001, she helped found NorthStar High School, the first charter high school in Orange County. More recently, she became a part-time registered Enrolled Agent with H&R Block. In her spare time, Judy loves to garden and dote on daughter, Jacquelynne, and granddaughter, Halie.
