How I Can Help You
As 'head of distributed media' I collect, preserve, and make moving image media and sound recordings accessible at the Libraries Media Center. I also oversee operations for the Media Center, serve as the primary film and video selector for the Libraries, and liaise with the Museology Program. Sometimes I teach and write on topics related to ethnomusicology, archiving, and music/film criticism (see my CV here). Before coming to the UW I was Archivist at the UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive, a Junior Fellow at the Library of Congress' American Folklife Center, and a drummer for sundry sonic projects.
For students I can:
• Recommend and find films, videos, and music for your research and learning needs.
• Tell you about what services and audio/video resources the Libraries has to offer you.
• Meet with you to discuss research related to ethnomusicology, copyright, NW music, film, and archives.
For faculty I can:
• Introduce your students to the Libraries' audio/video/film collections and research tools/strategies via workshops.
• Discuss ways to best incorporate research skills and audio/video/film materials into your class assignments.
• Recommend and acquire videos, music, and other sound recordings for your research and teaching needs.
• Work with you to publish and promote select student work on the Libraries' website.
• Offer help with copyright, funding strategies, and workflows for the preservation of cultural heritage materials.
• Speak with you about digitizing, preserving, and providing access to audio/video/film materials.
• Act as a liaison communicating your department's concerns and needs to library administration.
For the public I can:
• Answer questions about the role the Libraries plays in preserving and providing access to NW music and film.
• Offer guidance on preserving and providing access to your audio/video/film collections.
• Answer questions you may have about our audio/video/film collections.
Subject and class guides created by me (often with the help of numerous iSchool students!) to help you attain your academic pursuits.
