How can we ensure that the wealth of knowledge and culture in libraries, museums, and archives is open for use—online, everywhere, and forever? Dr. Fenlon is tackling this question with research on the use, sustainability, and curation of digital cultural collections. Her recent work explores the intersection of cultural data and humanities publishing, and the social and technical challenges to sustaining collections over time. Dr. Fenlon is an affiliate faculty member at the UMD Maryland Institute for Technologies in the Humanities (MITH) and the Digital Curation Innovation Center (DCIC), where she engages in interdisciplinary work focusing on digital collections, data modeling, and digital curation.
