Current Role at Stanford


As a part of Digital Library Systems and Services, I manage the digital library discovery, access, and delivery portfolio for Stanford Libraries, and oversee software development and user experience design. This includes Stanford Libraries' main website (library.stanford.edu), our information discovery platform (SearchWorks), our online exhibition platform (Spotlight), and the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR)'s various access and delivery systems for images and media using the International Image Interoperability Framework.

In addition, I provide strategic and technical leadership for collaborative digital library projects undertaken by Stanford Libraries, including Virtual Tribunals (with the WSD Handa Center for Human Rights and International Justice) and the Digital Library of the Middle East (with the Council on Library and Information Resources), and help organize LDCX, an annual unconference for technologists in the cultural heritage sector.

  • Hydra in a Box, Stanford University Libraries (May 2015 - November 2017)

    The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), Stanford University and DuraSpace are partnering to extend the existing Hydra project codebase and its vibrant and growing community to build, bundle, and promote a feature-rich, robust, flexible digital repository that is easy to install, configure, and maintain. This next-generation repository solution -- "Hydra-in-a-Box" -- will work for institutions large and small, incorporating the capabilities and affordances to support networked resources and services in a shared, sustainable, national platform. The overall intent is to develop a digital collections platform that is not just "on the web," but "of the web." With funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the 30-month collaborative project kicked off in May 2015; product design and software development are now underway.
