Christopher (Cal) Lee will join the faculty at the School of Information and Library Science on July 1, 2005.
Cal comes to SILS from the University of Michigan where he recently received two outstanding teaching awards. He specializes in archives and records management, and he will initially be teaching "Introduction to Archives and Records Management" (INLS 145).
"Cal is known as one of the most knowledgeable and experienced young scholars in the areas of archiving, digital preservation, and electronic records management in the United States today," said Dr. Jose-Marie Griffiths, dean of SILS.
In his dissertation, he researched the development of the Reference Model for an Open Archival Information System (OAIS). The OAIS RM is a cornerstone to the development of sound and sustainable digital archives.
As part of the CAMiLEON project ( Creative Archiving at Michigan and Leeds, Emulating the Old on the New), he investigated the properties of digital objects that are important to replicate over numerous generations of technology.
Cal received his Masters of Science in Information with a concentration in archives and records from the University of Michigan in 1999. He then served as Electronic Records Project Archivist at the Kansas State Historical Society, where he provided electronic record keeping guidance, developed portions of the Kansas Statewide Technical Architecture, and co-founded and served as first chair of the Kansas Electronic Records Committee. Cal is currently a Ph.D. candidate and will soon defend his dissertation.
Please join us in welcoming Cal to Chapel Hill and to the School of Information and Library Science.
