Biografie (woord)

Dr. Matusiak combines practical experience in building digital collections with research interests in use and evaluation of digital libraries. Currently, she works as an Assistant Professor at the University of Denver where she teaches classes on digitization in the Library and Information Science program. Prior to that, she worked as the Head of the Digitization Unit at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where she planned and designed over 20 distinct digital collections. She also served as a digitization consultant for projects funded by the Endangered Archive Programme at the British Library and assisted digital library projects at the Press Institute of Mongolia in Ulan Baatar, Mongolia and the Al-Aqsa Mosque Library in East Jerusalem. In conjunction with those projects, she published two papers on using digitization as a preservation strategy in developing countries. Information seeking and use of digital libraries, especially of digital image collections represents a major area of her research. She has published a number of articles on this topic and presented at national and international professional conferences. She is the recipient of the 2009 ACRL Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship.
