Director of Digital Scholarship Services
Eliza leads Olin Library’s research and teaching services for digital scholarship in the humanities and interpretive social sciences. Throughout the year, she collaborates with scholars and students on computational projects in mapping, visualization, text analysis, and digital exhibits and publishing, and in the summer, she oversees the Graduate Summer Fellowship in Digital Humanities. She also teaches and consults on issues related to digital privacy and surveillance, and is a member of the Library Freedom Project. Uniting all her work is a deep concern for helping people make meaning from, and exercise control over, data, information, and narratives. She has previously worked as the geospatial data librarian at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and as a project manager for the national interview project StoryCorps. She holds an M.A. in Geography from Hunter College, City University of New York, an M.L.I.S from UW-Milwaukee, and an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences (Evolution and Ecology) from Cornell.
