This is the way to display a collection! The George Kelley Paperback and Pulp Fiction Collection at the University at Buffalo: The State University of New York is not only aesthetically pleasing, but well organized and easy to navigate. Somehow, an incredibly dense amount of information is presented in a graceful design that successfully enables user discovery for browsing or targeted searching. There is even a section on cover art that features clear guidelines on copyright. I think I need to ask about their collection management platform and I will report back once I discover the secret. Amazing resource!

Findability is “the degree to which a particular object is easy to discover or locate” (Peter Morville, 2005, Ambient Findability) My first after school job was in the public library. I developed an appreciation of the Dewey Decimal system and never looked back, except for that whirlwind decade in advertising… Luckily, a digital asset management project at DDB reignited my interest in library and information sciences. I quickly obtained an MLIS and a position as a Digital Asset Manager administering a system for a high profile client following several awesome metadata projects and an internship at a worldwide media giant. My information related interests include taxonomy, metadata, cataloging, digitization, search, social media, digital asset management, emerging technologies and visual resources. Call me the Space Age Librarian, Visual Resource Manager, Content Specialist, Cataloging and Metadata Librarian or Digital Asset Management Expert.
