I'm currently the Head of Collections at the Center for Research Libraries, and an Associate Lecturer at the iSchool at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In the past, I've worked for the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation and StoryCorps.

I've been a web archivist for five years, and have deep experience in building and sustaining collaborative partnerships. I'm interested in collaborative collecting, especially of born-digital material, and the ways in which the field can leverage its collective expertise to build meaningful partnerships that span multiple communities and disciplines.

Here's a copy of my curriculum vitae. I'm on Twitter at @smbrms,
