Hi there! Thanks for coming to my site.
My name is Adam Kriesberg. I am a Lecturer at the University of Maryland College of Information Studies. Along with Ricky Punzalan, I am working 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 disseration, “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.
