Charles Blair

Director, Digital Library Development Center

Charles Blair

I have the pleasure of leading a dedicated group of people who provide technical support for The ARTFL Project, the Black Metropolis Research Consortium, Luna Insight, the OCHRE Data Service, and the SFX link resolver. The group designs, develops and maintains the Library Catalog, the Library's website, its digital collections, and the Library Digital Repository. It supports usability and the user experience and provides graphic design both digital and analog for the Library.

I co-chair the Discovery Systems Committee of the Chicago Collections Consortium with Kate Flynn of the University of Illinois at Chicago, which provides an opportunity for collaborating with archivists from other Chicago-area institutions on an important cultural heritage initiative.
