University of Maryland


We’re interested in building partnerships focused on student opportunities and research collaborations focused on topics in archives and digital curation, broadly conceived, including: 

We host a regular speaker series featuring innovative thinkers and practitioners in these areas, and we host a variety of other events including workshops, transcribe- and edit-a-thons, and social events. Our communities include LAM researchers and practitioners; researchers in intersecting domains of information science, human-computer interaction, and more; students from across programs; UMD INFO alumni; and more! 

CAFe’s director is Dr. Victoria Van Hyning.

CAFe proudly operates on a model of collective governance. The Center’s directorship rotates every two years. Past directors and founding members can be found on the People page.
