Digital Library Research

I am the Principal Investigator for the NSF-funded National Science Digital Library Project at Cornell. I lead the effort to develop key components of the Core Integration Technology for the library, and I manage the team that maintains the production library services. I also work with the other institutions involved in the Core Integration effort to specify, develop, and provide new digital library technologies to the over two hundred NSF-funded projects involved in the NSDL program.

My personal research interests also include 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.

For lists of papers and presentations, please see my curriculum vitae.

Information Technology

On the administrative side, I am the Director of Information Technology for Computing and Information Science. I help provide oversight for the Computer Facilities Support group, represent CIS to the campus-wide IT Managers Council, and focus on a number of issues including IT policy and computer security.

Personal

My personal interests include family history and what is loosely called "folk" music (ranging from old English ballads through modern singer/songwriters). I maintain a set of web pages on the Hunting/Huntting Family. I also have a family website at http://krafftfamily.org, and a Flickr photo site at http://www.flickr.com/photos/krafft.
