A. Project Goals
Dr. Richard Marciano is the recipient of the 2017 Emmett Leahy Award for "outstanding accomplishments that have had a major impact on the records and information management profession." Throughout his career, Richard has worked in interdisciplinary and highly collaborative environments at the intersection of technology, information, and records management. He has focused on blending disciplines (computer science, archives, and information management), to produce new ways of understanding the past. He was the founder and director of the UMD iSchool Digital Curation Innovation Center (DCIC) from 2015 to 2020.
On Feb. 28, 2020, Dr. Marciano founded and launched the Advanced Information Collaboratory (AIC). The AIC is an international community network of partners interested in fostering Computational Archival Science (CAS) research and exploring the opportunities and challenges of disruptive technologies for archives and records management, while promoting ethical information access and use.
