Short Bio

Richard Urban joined the faculty of Florida State University in 2011 after completing a MLIS and Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Richard's research interests are broadly concerned with representing cultural heritage collections online through quality metadata and usable interfaces. His research is informed by experience at the IMLS Digital Collections and Content Project, Collaborative Digitization Program, Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and Historical Society of Delaware.

Interest in LODLAM
