Jasmine Mulliken


As Digital Production Associate at Stanford University Press, I am part of a team working on a Mellon-funded initiative to publish web-based interactive scholarship with all the heft and rigor of traditional monographs but with none of the constraints imposed by print formats. My responsibilities include evaluating the technology powering each project we publish to ascertain its sustainability and its amenability to current and developing archiving and preservation methods. To guide authors and developers to such objectives, I produce the Press’s digital project guidelines and recommendations on platforms, coding standards, and documentation. I also coordinate the production workflow, which involves managing the projects’ hosting environments, consulting with contracted authors and developers on projects’ technical attributes, cataloging and registering projects with identifying metadata, advocating for improvement in classification vocabularies for born-digital work, and working with Stanford University Libraries to identify and establish archiving solutions for each project’s unique needs and formats.
