On July 1, Liz Lorang, Research Assistant Professor, started in the new position of Digital Humanities Projects Librarian. The position entails working with other librarians to identify students working on digital research projects, helping students develop their digital scholarship, teaching in the Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate program, and continuing as Senior Associate Editor on the Walt Whitman Archive.
