Jamie Wittenberg manages the Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Department, which assists researchers in planning, curating, preserving, and sharing their research outputs. Her professional interests include the long-term preservation of born-digital and digitized scholarship, brokering meaningful access to research outputs, and facilitating the stewardship and reuse of research data. Her current research includes work on pedagogical models for data services, automating open access policy implementation, publishing digital 3D objects, and building infrastructure to support shared big data resources at research libraries.
Her current projects include the Shared BigData-Gateway for Research Libraries and Developing Library Strategy for 3D and Virtual Reality Collection Development and Reuse, both funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). She speaks and publishes actively on her research interests, recently including "Building Capacity for Library 3D and VR: Expert Perspectives on Strategic Directions for Libraries" (CNI Fall 2018 Membership Meeting), "Opening the Gates: Leveraging Faculty Reporting Systems to Implement Open Access Policies" (2018 COAPI Members Meeting), "Situating expertise in practice: domain-based data management training for liaison librarians" (with Anna Sackmann and Rick Jaffe), "Building a research data management service at the University of California, Berkeley: A tale of collaboration" (with Mary Elings), and "Tools and Approaches to Personal Digital Archiving" (with Celia Emmelhainz) in The Complete Guide to Personal Digital Archiving.
