Dinah Handel

Digitization Services Manager

I am the Digitization Services Manager for Stanford University Libraries. I am a member of the Product and Service Management team, situated in the Digital Library Systems and Services unit. In this role, I oversee the digitization of still images, audio and video, born digital, and 3D. I work closely with production coordinators in the digitization labs, project managers, curators, and other staff across the library to facilitate digital collections projects and digitization.

More about me 

I was previously the Mass Digitization Coordinator for the New York Public Library. I am also a member of the 2018 Archives Leadership Institute cohort, and was a National Digital Stewardship Resident 2015-2016. I have participated in numerous community archives projects centering on audio-visual materials, including as a member of the New York City based media preservation collective XFR Collective. I am particularly interested in the ethics surrounding digitization of collections from underrepresented and/or marginalized groups.
