overview

Arden Kirkland is an independent digital librarian, providing consulting services for digital collections and online learning. Her years of work in higher education have included a focus on college students’ active participation in the construction of multimedia digital collections, especially with regards to representing material culture. That work began years ago with a project to provide online access to a collection of historic artifacts at Vassar College, using the Omeka platform.Her work on the Capability Maturity Model for Research Data Management also reinforced her interest in helping communities in the Arts and Humanities recognize the value of their research data and make it available for inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional reuse. One such inter-institutional project is HistoricDress.org, for which she has begun to develop "Costume Core,” a metadata profile for historic clothing artifacts.Most recently she has been the Project Coordinator for Design for Learning, an IMLS-funded series of online modules to teach librarians how to teach online. Other recent projects include web development in Omeka for ArtOneida.org and the Hudson Valley Visual Arts Collections Consortium (HVVACC.org).She holds an MSLIS from the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University, along with an MFA from Rutgers University and a CAS in Digital Libraries from SU.
