Digital Library
Head, Digital Library Department

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. Occasionally I say something about one of those subjects on twitter, but mostly I just complain about filling out the forms.  

xkcd comic showing "time cost" strategy A vs. strategy B have a similar time cost, but "Analyzing whether strategy A or B is more efficient" has a much larger time cost. The reason I am so inefficient is the punchline. Contact me for questions about:
digitization
the website, particularly the Digital Library bits
our Tumblr 
library statistics and metrics
