I’m the Electronic Records Archivist in Special Collections and University Archives at the University of Oregon. I’m responsible for ingest, access, and preservation of born-digital and digitized materials across all collections and formats–sound, still image, moving image, and text files from manuscript collections, University Archives, photographs, and rare books. I’m broadly interested in the challenges of providing access to born-digital or digitized collections that come with minimal (or no) descriptive metadata. My main research area involves exploring technological solutions for the mass-creation of metadata with a goal of improving access to digital material. My goal with the HiPSTAS project is to test the feasibility of using the ARLO software to create high-level descriptive metadata that will facilitate access to previously-undescribed sound collections.
