…Open Data, Open Access, Open Science…
I’m currently a Metadata Assistant at the Getty Research Institute, where I work on digital humanities projects related to the Getty Provenance Index (GPI) remodel. This includes the standardization and reconciliation of data from the GPI as we transition to a Linked Open Data model, which will virtually unite millions of records pertinent to the study of the history of collecting, provenance, and the art market. Through data cleaning and management, I help facilitate art historical research both now and for the future. My current project assists in the production and publication of data related to the German Sales II Project (1900-1929). My academic interests range from the topography, sculpture, and vase painting of Classical Greece – I wrote my dissertation on Athenian autochthony and identity during the Peloponnesian War – to research pertaining to the provenance of Greek and Roman antiquities and the history of travel, collecting, and display of works of ancient art.
Paige Morgan is the Digital Humanities Librarian at the University of Miami. Before joining the University of Miami she held a CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship at McMaster University in Ontario. She completed her PhD in English and Textual Studies at the University of Washington, where she developed the Demystifying Digital Humanities curriculum with Sarah Kremen-Hicks and Brian Gutierrez through a grant from the Simpson Center for the Humanities. Paige’s research interests include data modeling for humanities subjects, linked open data, social infrastructure for digital scholarship, emotional labor in tech contexts. She has served as a consultant and data wrangler on a variety of projects, including the CLIR microgrant project Identifying Early Modern Books (IdEMB). She teaches workshops and short courses on DH at training events such as DHSI and DH@Guelph. You can find her writing on topics related to digital humanities and libraries, as well as 18th and 19th century English poetry in journals such as Romanticism, Romantic Circles, and DH+Lib.
I am the Research Engagement Librarian for the Faculty of Humanities, University of Southampton, part of a team that aims to engage with the researchers and work with them in areas such as research data management, open research and collection development.

I have 15 years of progressively responsible management and leadership experience in academic libraries, research centers, and library associations driving programs and R&D projects focused on the technologies, policies, and best practices that support the long–term stewardship, access, and impact of digital research outputs and digital cultural heritages. I also conduct research in the areas of scholarly communication, digital scholarship, digital stewardship, data curation, metadata, information modeling, and conceptual foundations of LIS. I am currently the Interim EU Projects Manager and Open Science Officer at LIBER, the Association of European Research Libraries. I was formerly Head of Scholarly Communication Services at Columbia University Libraries

I spend most of my time thinking about and working on digital technology and its power to inform, educate and entertain. Like any tool, digital technology is progressive and creative, advancing and improving our lives in many ways; but it can also be disruptive and even dangerous depending on how it is used. These effects can be intentional or unintended. My aim is to understand how to best use technology to engage and empower as many people as possible whilst preventing or mitigating the auto-information disorders that degrade digital environments. My scholarship spans history, cultural and media studies, information science, social science and computing. My research interests centre on the evolution of documentary and communication media, the adoption of technology and associated socio-cultural shifts. My research has explored different advances in digital media: the web and digital publishing, digital television and narrowcasting, and the growing use of data sensors to quantify and analyse environments and behaviours. Working as a business analyst I’ve applied a wide range of methods and techniques from both my research training and professional certifications to design and develop various systems and services. I have a growing interest in behaviour driven design, data ethics and accessibility.
