Megan Mitchell, academic engagement & digital initiatives coordinator for the Libraries, has added the role of CODEX Project Director for the Ohio Five to her portfolio, succeeding Jacob Heil of the College of Wooster in this position.  Megan has been involved with CODEX (Collaborative for Digital Engagement and Experience) since its inception, has held leadership positions in Ohio Five Digital Collaborations and Digital Stewardship work groups, and is a steering committee member for Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship (ILiADS). We’re very fortunate to have Megan’s skill and experience to pilot CODEX. 

"This is the right moment for Oberlin's Libraries to offer more tools and training in digital scholarship and to collaborate more closely with our peers on workshops and projects," says Director Of Libraries Valerie Hotchkiss.

Mitchell will focus her teaching and liaison activities on digital scholarship for students and faculty, coordinating the work of many members of the libraries’ staff who are engaged with digital tools and platforms.

Her leadership in this role will help the Libraries fulfill the mission of developing informed scholars, resourceful artists, and engaged citizens.
