Keri Thompson

Digital Library
Head, Digital Library Department

(Normally) manages the digital library portions of the website and collections digitization activities, as well as several collections-related databases. I am interested in mass digitization; linked data; open data; research data management; creating and then filling out incredibly long forms; semi-colons; and brewing beer.
For the first half of Fiscal 2018, I will be leading a team tasked with piloting the key components of a research data management program at the Institution. This includes drafting institutional policies; creating best practices guidelines and determining training needs for researchers and data management support staff; determining ideal and minimal staffing levels for a data management program at SI; and assessing how the Institution can provide a technical infrastructure for description, deposit, and management of research data.
