Graham Dethmers, Metadata Analyst

We are pleased to announce that Graham Dethmers will join HathiTrust as Metadata Analyst with rank through the University of Michigan Library as Associate Librarian. He will work out of the Ann Arbor office as part of the Operations team beginning November 18, 2019.

Graham comes to us from the ExLibris division of ProQuest, where he has served as a Senior Metadata Librarian, acquiring and transforming metadata for ingestion into the Summon index and troubleshooting complex issues with client libraries. He also brings experience improving metadata processes and workflows and collaborating across multiple departments for complex ingestion and rights projects.

Graham earned a master’s degree in library and information science from the University of Michigan School of Information. He holds a B.A. in Japanese Language & Culture and Sociology from Hope College.

Sandra McIntyre, HathiTrust’s director of services and operations, emphasizes that this new role, focusing on metadata and discovery strategies, will  improve our services to member libraries in this critical area. Graham will support discovery and delivery of HathiTrust metadata, and analysis of the digital collection for collection development purposes. He will work to identify metadata needs and issues for HathiTrust, and support decision-making for future directions for metadata to make it more powerful for both human and machine use. 

Graham says he looks forward to “providing a key analytical role in improving the metadata for HathiTrust Digital Library and aiding in the further development of discovery strategy.”
