Ruth Kitchin Tillman

Between Exports and Infrastructure: Linked Data Systems in 2022

Ruth Kitchin Tillman works on discovery, the library catalog, and linked data projects at Penn State, where she currently holds the Sally W. Kalin Early Career Librarianship for Technological Innovations. She got her start in libraries in Technical Services, spending much of her 20s as the Serials Specialist at Jacob Burns Law Library, only 10 blocks away from where we are today. She received her MLS from the University of Maryland in 2013 and worked as the metadata librarian and ad-hoc cataloger at the NASA Goddard Library and the Digital Collections Librarian at the University of Notre Dame, before joining Penn State Libraries as the Cataloging Systems and Linked Data Strategist, 5 years ago this fall. Her research focuses on library systems, the people who maintain them, and the challenges and opportunities in the implementation of linked data.
