Jacqueline E. Chapman

Digital Collections Librarian

Jacqueline coordinates the digitization of collections items from across the Libraries, including contributions to the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL). She works directly with special collections, preservation, and cataloging staff as part of the Libraries' rare book digitization workflow. Jacqueline often interfaces with patrons of Smithsonian Libraries as well as users of the BHL, fulfilling digitization requests and addressing metadata enhancement queries. She serves on committees and working groups relating to Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion, Digital Library, Digitization, Metrics & Assessment, Archival Materials, and Social Media.

In 2016, Jacqueline was selected as one of 18 participants in Collective Wisdom: Libraries, Archives, and Museums, a conference exchange cohort as part of a nation-wide competitive application process. Collective Wisdom focused on strengthening the connections across archives, museums, and libraries for continuing education and professional development (CE/PD) and breaking down barriers between sectors. This opportunity was coordinated and funded through the Coalition to Advance Learning in Archives, Libraries and Museums, via the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

She holds a BA from Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT), where she graduated with Honors from the College of Letters.
