Arden Kirkland, MSLIS, MFA, is an independent digital librarian, providing services for digital collections and online learning. She is an Adjunct Professor for the iSchool at Syracuse University and a Lecturer for the School of Information Sciences at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. As Project Coordinator for the IMLS-funded Design for Learning program, she led the development of a series of online modules about online teaching, released as Open Educational Resources (OER). Her work on the Capability Maturity Model for Research Data Management reinforced her interest in helping communities in the Arts and Humanities recognize the value of their research data and make it available for inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional reuse. One such inter-institutional project is HistoricDress.org, for which she has been developing "Costume Core," a profile for cataloging historic clothing artifacts, with support from a grant from the Visual Resources Association Foundation. Other recent projects include web development in Omeka for ArtOneida.org and the Hudson Valley Visual Arts Collections Consortium (HVVACC.org), and experimental work on a web application for describing historic clothing artifacts using visual workflows at https://worksheet.dressdiscover.org/.
