Information Work
I am a member of the Information Work Research Group, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) training grant, 2012-2016.

Sound projects

PI, HiPSTAS Research and Development with Repositories (HRDR) is an NEH-funded project under the Preservation and Access category to increase access to significant digitized spoken word sound recordings. The University of Texas School of Information and the Illinois Informatics Institute (I3) at the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign received two years of funding to develop and evaluate a computational system that will allow librarians and archivists to use machine learning and visualization to
automate processes for discovering and cataloging.

PI, High Performance Sound Technologies for Search and Analysis (HiPSTAS): is an NEH-funded Institute in Advanced Technologies in the Digital Humanities. At these meetings, participants will be introduced to advanced computational analytics such as clustering, classification, and visualizations. Participants include a diverse range of librarians, archivists, scholars (including graduate students), and cultural heritage professionals from all types of institutions, disciplinary backgrounds, and expertise, who are interested in working with sound collections and technologies.
