Eliza Bettinger

Cornell University Library, NY

Eliza Bettinger is the Lead Librarian for Digital Scholarship at Cornell University Library in Ithaca, New York, where she helps scholars and students get the hang of digital approaches to research. She works with maps, text, data, images, visualizations, networks, codes, and always, people and their questions. She sees Internet literacy – technical, social, and economic – as the fundamental to the pedagogical work of librarians. Before Eliza was a librarian, she worked as a daily newspaper reporter on the U.S.-Canada border and traveled the country for the national interview project StoryCorps.
