Assistant Director, Special Collections
Current Role at StanfordThe Assistant Director in the Department of Special Collections & University Archives is primarily in charge of the Collection Services Division and the libraries' Born- and Acquired-Digital Programs.
Collection Services staff work collaboratively with over 20 subject specialists and curators throughout the library; we take in about 350 collections each year. These total between 1,800 and 3,500 linear feet (which is equivalent to 2.5-6 million documents) a year. The focus is on collection management as well as discovery and access including: acquisitions, cataloging and processing of incoming material in any format - from rare books and papyrus fragments to artifacts and computer media. We also manage all digitization projects and descriptive metadata for special collections materials in conjunction with subject specialists and the digital library group.
The departments' Born-Digital Program collaborates with Digital Libraries Systems and Services as well as the libraries' Metadata Development Unit. The department of Special Collections also directs the ePADD Project - developing software to acquire, process and deliver email archives in our collections. The software (Version 5.0) came out in winter 2018.
