Jeremy York
Assistant Librarian
University of Michigan

I am an interface designer in the Scholarly Publishing Office and part of the HathiTrust digital library initiative at the University of Michigan. I am interested in the online presentation of digital collections (published and unpublished) and finding ways to more fully integrate the resources of libraries and archives.

Fields of interest: Libraries/Digital Archives, Collaborative Technologies

Bob Taylor
Director
Academic & Research Technologies
Northwestern University

I’m director of the academic computing organization at Northwestern University. Software developers in Academic & Research Technologies have tackled interesting work in the areas of audio archives (NSF Digital LIbraries in the Classroom program), high-resolution image viewers, text analysis frameworks (WordHoard, MONK in-progress), cultural heritage digitization projects (high-resolution sculpture and mural efforts in Dunhuang and Xian, China), on-line book and manuscript presentation models (Vesalius project, The Encyclopedia of Chicago), and repository interoperability issues.

One of the areas of research computing investigation this fall at NU is development and planning for science hubs: services and software for supporting the work of on-line, “virtual organizations” of large scale, multi-university research teams on NSF, NIH or NASA projects. I’m interested in eventually understanding whether the cyberinfrastructure work that is being done for distributed research teams on large-scale science projects will hold any value for the smaller-scale “craft” traditions (and usually, one-off tools) that have often characterized digital humanities efforts.

Joshua Trampier
Ph.D. candidate
Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations
University of Chicago

My background is in ancient Egyptian languages and cultures, as well as in applying remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems to problems of landscape archaeology. My interest in ancient Egypt ranges from the Neolithic to late Roman/early Islamic periods, and I am interested in addressing questions of relationships between archaeological praxis, CRM-relevant law, tourism, and technology. As the Associate Director of CAMEL, I am also interested in digital archive initiatives and standards, as well as geographical data modeling and visualization.

Brandon Harvey
Industry Researcher
Accenture

I am a researcher at the Accenture Technology Labs here in Chicago. It’s an applied technology group, which means that we build and experiment with technologies that are expected to have an impact in the next 2-5 years. I’m interested in human-computer interactions, which for me encompassees how we present resources to the user — whether textual, numeric, or interpersonal — as well as how we enable users to take meaningful action.

Carmela Mattza
Ph.D Candidate
Romance Languages and Literatures
University of Chicago

I am interested in Digital Libraries, particularly I focus on pedagogical strategies to make them accessible through my teaching in the classroom. “Perseus” and The “Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes” (BVMC) are among those I use a lot, although because of my area of expertise it is BVMC the one I use the most. BVMC is one of the largest digital libraries in the Spanish speaking world and it is free. It provides access to texts in a variety of areas (science, arts, humanities, newspapers, etc) and time (medieval, early modern, modern, contemporary, etc.).

Morgan Elmore
Web & Digital Library Specialist
Center for Research Libraries

I am a web developer and programmer working predominantly on creating search and discovery interfaces for traditional and digitized library materials. CRL digitizes items on-demand for its members and is always on the look-out for ways to increase the discoverability and usefulness of these materials for researchers.
