New Initiatives in Metadata and Digitization at UH Libraries

The University of Houston Libraries is boosting its application of technology in metadata and digitization with a new metadata librarian.

Andrew Weidner will provide consulting and support for both UH Libraries and UH campus repository metadata needs and data management services; assist with creation and maintenance of descriptive, technical, and preservation metadata for UH Digital Library collections; and participate in exploring, evaluating and recommending alternative metadata and emerging technologies that can be applied in the Libraries’ broader discovery environment.

“Metadata and Digitization Services Department is excited about the arrival of Andrew Weidner,” said Annie Wu, head of Metadata and Digitization Services. “His addition will help advance us in our application of new initiatives and technology in UH Libraries digital efforts.”

Weidner received his MS in Library and Information Science from UNT in 2011. His most recent publication, “Workflow Tools for Digital Curation,” appeared in Code {4} Lib Journal.
