Keri Thompson

Head, Digital Library Department

Manages all collections digitization activities at the Libraries, including digitization for the Biodiversity Heritage Library, as well as several collections-related databases and the parts of the website that host and display digitized collections.   Coordinates management and storage of all SIL's owned (not licensed) digital assets.
In late 2017- early 2018, I lead a small team, including staff from the Libraries, Archives, and OCIO that researched and provided guidance to the Institution on how to develop and institute a formal Research Data Management program. This included drafting institutional policies; creating best practices guidelines and determining training needs for researchers and data management support staff; and assessing how the Institution can provide a technical infrastructure for description, deposit, and management of research data.

Previous experience at the Institution includes work in Systems administration and on the Libraries' catalog, SIRIS, as well as desktop and application support and web development.
