Douglas Knox
Director of Publication and Digital Initiatives
Newberry Library

I was managing editor of the Encyclopedia of Chicago and have been involved in a number of other digital publication projects ranging from historical GIS reference works to online exhibits. I’m interested in how the digitization of the cultural record can serve scholarly and public purposes. I am particularly interested in the intersections of developments in digital humanities and digital libraries, and what libraries and archives look like when we ask them not just to support search, but the work of historical inference.

Fields of interest: Text Analysis , Imaging/Visualization, GIS/Mapping, Libraries/Digital Archives
