As a librarian/archivist, I have been interested in the digital humanities for years. I'm very interested in any project that can make special collections (rare books, photographs, manuscripts, posters, theater programs, scrapbooks, records, film and video, audio recordings, ephemera, etc) available to a wider audience. I was one of the first to contribute collections to the Kentuckiana Digital Library, worked with Kentucky Educational Television to digitize their videos and explore digital asset management, and worked to integrate special collections seamlessly into the discovery environment at the North Carolina State University Libraries. This included starting to explore large scale digitization, geolocation of photos and architecture drawings, automating metadata generation and 3D projects based on historic 2D drawings.
