Currently I am a history librarian and associate faculty director for collections services at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I've worked since 2001. Through a project to digitize and enhance access to a collection of World War I materials, I have become quite interested in the potential of Linked Data to increase interoperability and discovery in digital historical collections. I find the geospatial-temporal aspect particularly appealing, which springs in part from my previous position as a geospatial information librarian at the University of Michigan. I hold an MLIS and a PhD in History, both from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
