Jonathan's role in the library
As Sound Archives Librarian for Stanford's Archive of Recorded Sound, I am principally responsible for creating access to the Archive's vast collection through the production of finding aids and catalog records as well as the development of online discovery tools.
I am also responsible for Public Services at the Archive and digitization of collection materials for patrons.

More about Jonathan
Originally from St. Albans, England, I moved to the USA in 2009. Before coming to Stanford I was Technical Support Officer for the Britten Thematic Catalogue Project, a forthcoming digital resource currently under development at the Britten-Pears Foundation that will detail all of Benjamin Britten's works online. My work for the project notably included the documentation and analysis of approximately 1150 original manuscript sources that constitute the 735 works Britten wrote between the ages of 5-18, most of which have never received any form of scholarly assessment.
