At UCSB, I am the Performing Arts Cataloger / Metadata Librarian and I am currently active in the Digital Humanities Reading Group here. We are just beginning to talk about what DH means and how we as a library might play a role in the DH arena at UCSB. Prior to my arrival at UCSB in July 2014, I worked at Brown University as a Music Cataloger/Metadata Librarian. In my role as the Metadata Librarian, I worked directly with the Center for Digital Scholarship and its predecessor, the Center for Digital Initiatives. I provided metadata services and/or consultative and educational services with regards to metadata to students, faculty and staff on a wide variety of digital humanities projects from across the campus.

no bio yet
I’ve been in several roles at the California Digital Library since 2002. Most recently, I’m a project manager in the Discovery & Delivery Services Group since 2008. I studied Art History at UC Berkeley, and I have an MLIS with a focus on new media and art. I managed a shared digital image initiative in the mid 2000’s — UC Shared Images. My DH interest is broad — what tools and services can CDL provide to support campus DH? In 2014, I attended some of the informative monthly meetings of the Berkeley digital humanities working group and I follow the Berkeley DH list, as well as monitoring a few other UC DH resources. I’m intrigued by the wide gamut of DH activities and tools spanning disciplines.
