Avalon Advisory Board
Avalon Media System Advisory Board Members
An advisory board of six members has been established for the two-year duration of our Mellon Grant funding with representation drawn from Avalon implementers, the Hydra community, the media archives community, media library community, university IT community, and scholars using media in their research.
Howard Besser, Director, Moving Image Archive and Preservation Program, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University
Lois Brooks, Vice Provost for Information Services, Oregon State University
Karen Cariani, Director, Media Library and Archives, WGBH Educational Foundation
Tom Cramer, Chief Technology Strategist and Associate Director of Digital Library Systems and Services, Stanford University Libraries
Scott Spicer, Media Outreach and Learning Spaces Librarian, University of Minnesota
Mark J. Williams, Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies, Dartmouth College
In-person meetings of the advisory board will be conducted in Evanston in order to gain input from participants on project priorities and strategies and quarterly meetings will be held virtually to update members on progress and seek additional feedback.
We thank our Advisory Board for their dedication to our work.
