SCIENCE SUNDAYS: Collections as Data: Combining Data Science and the Power of Library Collections to Unlock New Understanding

While the digital revolution has changed the way libraries serve their users, it’s also enabled new modes of research and creativity. Kate Zwaard will explore how libraries and archives are presenting their collections so artists, researchers and the curious can interact with them in new ways.

As director of digital strategy at the Library of Congress, Kate Zwaard helps the nation’s oldest cultural institution use technology to enable transformational user experiences. She is a statistician by training, a software developer by trade and deeply in love with humanity’s creative and scientific work.
