About - Jason A. Clark
Hi. I'm Jason.
As the Head of Special Collections & Archival Informatics, I build and direct the archival branch of the Montana State University (MSU) Library. In my work, I have focused on Semantic Web development, digital library development, metadata and data modeling, web services and APIs, search engine optimization, and interface design.
Before coming to MSU, I became interested in the intersection between libraries and technology while working as a web developer for the Division of Information Technology at the University of Wisconsin. After two years, I moved on to work as the web services librarian at Williams College Libraries.
I really enjoy teaching and speaking about what I do. I try to publish my thoughts whenever I can and have even written some books.
When I don't have metadata on the brain, I like to hike the mountains of Montana with my wife, our daughter, and our furry family member.
