About the Authors
Andrew Asher is digital initiatives coordinator and scholarly communications officer at Bucknell University, where he leads the university’s open access program and conducts research on the information practices of students and faculty. Asher’s most recent projects have examined how “discovery” search tools influence undergraduates’ research processes, and how university researchers manage, utilize, and preserve their research data.
Charles Henry is president of the Council on Library and Information Resources. He is also a board member of the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE) and of the Center for Research Libraries, and is a member of the Scientific Board of the Open Access Publishing in the European Network (OAPEN) project. In collaboration with NITLE, he is currently publisher of Anvil Academic Publishing, which focuses on new forms of scholarly research and expression.
Lori Jahnke is currently the anthropology librarian at Emory University. She was previously a CLIR postdoctoral fellow at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania. Her primary project was to contribute to the development of the Medical Heritage Library as a multi-institutional collaboration for digitization in the health sciences. In addition to her work in libraries and digitization, Jahnke is a practicing anthropologist.
Spencer D. C. Keralis is director of the Digital Scholarship Co-Operative (DiSCo) at the University of North Texas (UNT). His current research focuses on the implications of social media, digital curation, and data management for the future of the humanities.
