Head, Digital Content & Collections

About me

I am the Head of Digital Content & Collections (DCC) in Library Information Technology (LIT).

I am responsible for leading the DCC department in creating and maintaining U-M Library's Digital Collections. The department works with partners from U-M Library, our campuses, and the community, to develop these Digital Collections. The Digital Conversion Unit (DCU) - our U-M Library's digitization capacity - and the Text Creation Unit are part of DCC.

The department is deeply involved in all discussions regarding suitable, long-term preservation and appropriate access to our content. We all collaborate and engage with stakeholders and partners to build and maintain an appropriate content platform for both end-users and preservation.

I am a U-M Library member representative to the Google Books Library Project and the HathiTrust Digital Library. I also volunteer my time to the HathiTrust Digital Library as the Digital Objects Quality Corrections (DOQC) Coordinator.

In 2005, I was named a Library Journal Mover & Shaker. I have prior experience in information architecture (with the Argus Associates firm) and ontology and taxonomy consulting (with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome).

I received my MLS from the University of Michigan School of Information in 1996.
