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, where I work with students, faculty, and staff in the Department of English, Department of History, and Women's & Gender Studies Program. I also 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. I'm the co-PI of Image Analysis for Archival Discovery (Aida), an NEH– and IMLS-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. I emphatically believe that libraries of all kinds—academic, public, and more—are crucial to an informed and engaged public and that libraries can and should actively engage in social justice work.
