About the project team

The Creating Collaborative Catalogs team is made up of partners from several museums and universities, both in the Southwestern United States and elsewhere. The team is led by two researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles-- Dr. Ramesh Srinivasan, an assistant professor in the Department of Information Studies, and Katherine Becvar, MLIS, the project manager. Dr. Robin Boast, deputy director of the University of Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, is the technological advisor on the project. Jim Enote, the director of the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center (AAMHC), is the leader of the project team at Zuni and provides an important link with the Zuni community. The rest of the project team is made up of Robert Breunig, director of the Museum of Northern Arizona; Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh, curator of anthropology at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science; and Nancy Blomberg, Native arts curator at the Denver Art Museum.
