Brief Bio

The second edition of my textbook Metadata for Digital Collections has been published by ALA Neal-Schuman in July 2022. I retired in May 2016, and from 2017 through 2020 I periodically taught an 8-week online course titled “Linked Data for Beginners.” Prior to retirement I taught masters degree and continuing education courses on information/knowledge organization, metadata, cataloging, information architecture, linked data and ontologies. From roughly 1995 through 2015 I gave numerous conference presentations and workshops, developed workshop materials published by the Library of Congress and OCLC, and served on committees and held leadership positions in several national-level professional organizations. In retirement I enjoy keeping up with developments in metadata and linked data, as well as reading for pleasure, studying classical Greek language and literature, attending performing arts of all kinds (especially Wagnerian opera), bicycling, and travel in North America and Europe.
