Elizabeth M. Lorang Who is Liz?

I’m an Associate Professor of Libraries and Humanities Librarian in the University Libraries at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. As part of my work, I direct the Digital Scholarship Incubator, co-teach the Digital Humanities Practicum course, and serve as co-coordinator of UNL's digital humanities curriculum committee, which oversees UNL's Graduate Certificate Program in Digital Humanities and undergraduate minor in digital humanities. My professional interests and research areas include digital humanities and digital scholarship, academic libraries, American poetry, and nineteenth-century American newspapers. I'm the co-PI of Image Analysis for Archival Discovery (Aida), an NEH-funded project that seeks to leverage the information potential of digital images for discovery in digitized collections, and am a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities. I'm privileged to be a part of some amazing collaborations and learn every day from my inspiring colleagues, mentors, and friends. In a future life, I dream of running a bakery or an alpaca ranch. Maybe both, but probably not at the same time.
