    Currently serving as the Director of the Center for Library Initiatives at the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC). Interested in how libraries, publishers and users are managing the transition from print to electronic resources, with particular focus on the collaborative efforts of libraries to extend their mission to include content creation. Was a founder of the Text Creation Partnership-- a working-group that partners with libraries and commercial publishers to create accurately keyboarded and encoded editions of early texts (EEBO, ECCO, and EAI). Have also worked closely with the Google/library mass digitization project, various text analysis initiatives, and open access publishing at the University of Michigan and elsewhere. Currently looking for scalable collaborative opportunities to support digital humanities across the fifteen CIC universities.
