Howdy. I’m Lisa Spiro. Currently I am the executive director of Digital Scholarship Services at Rice University’s Fondren Library. I have published or presented on a range of topics related to technology and higher education, including a study for the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) investigating “Can a New Research Library be All-Digital?” (with Geneva Henry), an exploration of collaboration in the digital humanities, and a CLIR report examining archival management systems. I have also contributed essays to Debates in the Digital Humanities, #alt-academy: Alternate Academic Careers for Humanities Scholars, and The American Literature Scholar in the Digital Age. I serve as Communications Officer for the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) and am a member of the Executive Council of the Association for Computers and the Humanities. I was founding editor of the DiRT wiki (now Bamboo DiRT) and currently serve on its advisory board. Formerly I was director of NITLE Labs, Program Manager of Anvil Academic, and Director of the Digital Media Center at Rice University. To learn more about me, see my CV.
