Jacqueline E. Chapman

Head, Digital Library and Digitization

Jacqueline coordinates the selection, prioritization, and digitization of collections items from across the Libraries for both our Digital Library and the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL), and oversees the Libraries' contributions to the Smithsonian's Digital Asset Management System (SI DAMS) for projects such as the Transcription Center and Learning Lab. At the Institution, she is currently serving a 2 year appointment to the Digitization Program Advisory Committee (DPAC) of the Digitization Program Office, and is also on the DPAC Informatics Subcommittee.

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.
