Short Bio

I am the Collaboration & Interoperability Architect in Digital Library Systems and Services at the Stanford University Libraries, serving as a technologist, advocate, and facilitator for cross-institutional projects. Prior to joining Stanford, I worked as an archivist, technologist, and strategist specializing in born-digital materials and metadata management, at institutions including the Digital Public Library of America, Yale University Library, The New York Public Library, and the American Institute of Physics. I received a MSI from the University of Michigan School of Information and a BA in Philosophy from the College of Wooster, and was a recipient of the Emerging Leader Award from the Society of American Archivists in 2012.

Interest in LODLAM

I'd like to resurface use cases for representing archival description in linked data. I'm happy to see the progress on RiC by the ICA's Expert Group on Archival Description, but I'm also wondering about lighter weight options for representing this information as well. I'm also eager to talk about integration patterns for designing linked data applications, and issues regarding synchronization and data maintenance.
