-While at Syracuse University, Phyllis was asked to design an on-line computer program to organize collections,​ and when she was working at McMaster University Library, she prepared a printed catalogue for the Serials Department. At the College BiblioCentre,​ her work involved recataloguing a technical college library and integrating it into a centralized system. However, she never gave up on the idea of being an archivist. When she became a Certified Archivist, she became an archivist ​ at York University. ​ She loved the work, and once said “Where else could one get paid to read other people’s mail.”\\ +
