During his time at University Archives, Jeremy Floyd is transitioning legacy accession metadata into the ArchivesSpace collection management system. He is also overseeing a pilot project to digitize the student newspaper, the Indiana Daily Student, and working to describe and make accessible digitized media from the University Archives.
Jeremy's professional practice and research interests center on linked open data in archival description, extensible processing for access, and radical empathy in archival labor. Jeremy seeks to provide access to IU Libraries' unique collections, open archival description for use and re-use beyond the institution, and elevate the labor and relationships which exist between archivists, collections, researchers, and the communities affected by each.
Jeremy is a graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington's School of Library and Information Science (now a part of the Luddy School) with a Master of Library Science degree and a specialization in Archives and Records Management. He has held processing archivist roles at Texas A&M University Commerce (2011 - 2013) and SUNY College at Buffalo (2013 - 2015), and as metadata librarian at the University of Nevada, Reno (2015 - 2020). Most recently he worked as Government Publications Librarian at the Nevada State Library, Archives, and Public Records before beginning his role with University Archives at IU.
