Hi there! Thanks for coming to my site.

My name is Adam Kriesberg. I am an Assistant Professor at Simmons University’s School of Library and Information Science. My research and teaching interests lie in the intersecting domains of Archives, Digital Curation, Data Management, Digital Preservation, and Public Sector Information. Here at Simmons SLIS, I also serve as the Co-Director of the Dual Degree Program in Archives + History.

Previously, I was a Lecturer at the University of Maryland College of Information Studies where I taught and worked on a variety of research projects related to agricultural data curation as part of a cooperative agreement with the National Agricultural Library. I completed my PhD at the University of Michigan in 2015. My dissertation, “The Changing Landscape of Digital Access: Public-Private Partnerships in US State and Territorial Archives,” used a mixed methods design to examine the digitization partnerships between government archives and private companies. At Michigan, I worked as a research assistant on the Archival Metrics Project, developing and testing toolkits to¬†promote evaluation in archives, and the¬†DIPIR Project, investigating data reuse in three academic communities: quantitative social science, archaeology, and zoology.
