I'm slowly adding a light theme to this site. I apologize that some things aren't going to be ideal or perhaps even legible as I make all the changes.
Thanks for understanding!
Here are some of the more library-related things I’ve done. This is current as of 2015-10-10. My full cv is available here.

Begun for my Digital Libraries class with John Walsh, Raincross Underground is an Omeka site with items from a Riverside, CA creative scene that existed during the early 2000s. It includes images, sounds, and TEI markup of songs from a band I was in.
Bloomington City Directories Finding Guide
Making the Bloomington City Directories Finding Guide began with an inventory of the various directories held by the Herman B Wells Library. Then I had to decide the best way to organize and present this information to our patrons. Finally, I wrote the html code to inclue the guide on the website.
Indiana Historical Maps Digital Collection
Although the work of digitizing this collection began before I arrived at the Government Documents, Maps, and Microform Services department, the Indiana Historical Maps Digital Collection project took the bulk of my first year there. A large part of my role as the Maps Graduate Assistant involved digitizing and adding maps to this collection, as well as determining, adding, and standardizing appropriate metadata like tags that relevant researchers would find useful throughout the collection.
