  • Tools and techniques for data visualization and text analysis
  • Managing Metadata schema and APIs
  • Managing students and volunteers
  • Planning for collection scalability and data migration to new platforms
  • Long-term preservation and access to digital media
  • Best practices for managing rights to digital information
  • Strategies for increasing the role of the library as a research partner in emerging areas of scholarship in Japanese studies
