'Computing Cultural Heritage in the Cloud: An Interview with Victoria Scheppele'
For the Library of Congress (LC) blog The Signal, Leah Weinryb-Grohsgal interviews Victoria “Tori” Scheppele, a library technician in the Prints & Photographs Division who is temporarily working on the LC’s Computing Cultural Heritage in the Cloud (CCHC) initiative.
Weinryb-Grohsgal writes, “The CCHC initiative is supported by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Centered in LC Labs, the project aims to explore how the Library can deliver its digital collections at scale, using a cloud computing environment. For decades, the Library has collected and digitized images, audio and video recordings, web sites, texts, and structured metadata. With CCHC, Tori will help us to explore the service models and technical infrastructure that would support researchers’ connection with this digital content in novel ways.” Weinryb-Grohsgal “interviewed Tori about her background, experience, and interests, and what she’ll be doing to help the Library provide enhanced access to digital collections as data.”
