Welcoming Caryl Wyatt to HathiTrust

Caryl Wyatt, Senior Front End Developer

Caryl Wyatt joined HathiTrust in October in a new role as Senior Front-end Developer to focus on our digital library interfaces and to design solutions to meet the needs of diverse users from around the world. This includes interfaces for our search, online book-reading, personalized collection management, and more. 

Before joining HathiTrust, Caryl worked as the Technology Development Librarian at the University Libraries of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and prior to that, as the Reference and Instruction Librarian at Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis, Indiana. 

Her past experience includes leading a remote, statewide task force in usability studies for website redesign, designing and developing web tools to support her campus during the pandemic, as well as mentoring student workers and designing documentation. 

Caryl is glad to be joining the team at HathiTrust and is “excited to jump into existing projects on the development team and lend a hand with the website redesign.” She is also particularly passionate about upcoming work designing collection statistics visualizations, which will illuminate trends and nuances of the collection in more compelling ways.

Aaron Elkiss, Enterprise Architect, says, “Caryl's hire gives HathiTrust dedicated expertise on front-end development. This will allow HathiTrust to develop a strategy for modernizing the front-end for digital library applications, as well as to continue and expand our focus on accessibility. Caryl brings new opportunities for learning and collaboration among the development team and innovation in the digital library applications.”
