Nora is passionate about the sustainability, preservation, and open access of digital resources. As Digital Repository Librarian, she manages the migration of Lafayette College’s institutional repository and digital collections to a new access repository based on the Samvera application stack.  She liaises with the international Samvera Community and advocates for the perspective of the liberal arts college within the context of open source software and repository development.  In addition to her role managing the migration of College’s repository, Nora works with the other members of the Digital Scholarship Services team on faculty collaborations and digitization initiatives.  She consults on digital asset management and audiovisual object creation for the Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium, a grant initiative funded by the Andrew W.
