 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.”\\ 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.
