guise as an administrator, I manage the Computer
Facilities Support group and worry about a number of issues including computer security, networking, and building web services. Most recently, we've upgraded the department's networking
On the research side, I am part of the Cornell Digital Libraries Research Group
(CDLRG). We have recently received a major Digital Libraries
Initiative grant to support our research into the integrity issues of digital libraries. This work will focus on the issues of preservation, reliability,
interoperability, security, and metadata for digital libraries (the PRISM project). My own particular interests focus on ensuring the availability in the digital world of pre-digital published and manuscript materials, as well as related issues on copyright, the public domain, and public access to older and out-of-print materials.
