As the Assistant Director I focus primarily on the Born-Digital Program & Collection Services division for the Department of Special Collections which takes in over 2,000 rare books and 350 new manuscript collections (averaging 2,000 linear feet) each year. In addition, I run the ePADD Project which continues to develop an email archiving and delivery tool.
