Librarian. Humanist. My career’s throughline is making digital special collections findable and usable for the purposes of scholarship, teaching, learning, artistic practice, and personal use.
As Associate Head of Digital Collections Discovery at Harvard Library, I’m a practitioner-manager. Our team has expertise in project development and sustainability, copyright, metadata, and service design and management. My colleagues and I design, implement, and maintain infrastructure for digital collections and exhibitions based on deep engagement with users and strong partnership with other units.
In 2013 I graduated from the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Master of Science in Information Science degree. I see myself not only as a librarian, but also a humanist whose discipline of information science seeks to understand how “people construct representations of the natural and cultural world with which they interact,” as Jonathan Furner describes.
