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 department in creating and maintaining U-M Library's Digital Collections service. The department works with partners from U-M Library, our campuses, and the community, to develop these Digital Collections. I also lead the department in the management of ingest of our digitized content into Google Books and HathiTrust Digital Library.

The Digital Conversion Unit (DCU) - our U-M Library's digitization capacity - and the Text Creation Unit are units in DCC.

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

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