Catherine Candee - Biography
Catherine Candee has been leading the eScholarship initiative at the California Digital Library since May 2000. The California Digital Library, or CDL, is the 11th university library of the University of California. It was established in 1997 to build the university's digital library, to encourage campus libraries to share their resources and holdings more effectively, and to provide leadership in the application of information technology to the development of UC's library collections and services.
Since its establishment, the CDL has amassed one of the largest digital library collections available anywhere. It has also adopted a unique service model: one that emphasizes service to libraries, educational establishments and other cultural and information organizations, over individual end-user services.
At CDL, Catherine Candee oversees the application of digital technologies to influence and support innovations in scholarly communication throughout its life cycle, including production and dissemination. The eScholarship program is the focal point of this effort and includes experimentation with digital repositories for dissemination of digital scholarly content, the development of supporting services and tools for repository-based communication, and publication of new scholarly products, including peer-reviewed articles, books and journals, and findings in non-standard formats.
