Hola, thanks for visiting, I'm Elias Tzoc -originally from Guatemala- I joined Miami University in August 2007. As a Digital Initiatives Librarian, I assist the head of the Center for Digital Scholarship to provide Miami scholars and students with the facilities, services, and expertise to support the creation and use of digital scholarship projects. I also assist in the management and maintenance for the Scholarly Commons repository and Library's Digital Collections portal. In the fall semesters, I teach a section of the IMS 201 class for the AIMS program.

On my personal blog, you'll find posts about projects and/or topics that are relevant to my professional activities. On the top-right side of this page, you will also find links to dedicated pages about the work we've done with CONTENTdm and DSpace.

My current/recent work includes: serving as co-PI for two grant-funded projects: 2015 IMLS Sparks and 2014 NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up; co-developing a profile module for DSpace; working with faculty and students in developing web-based projects; evaluating captioning best practices for educational videos; documenting and writing on library technical issues and open source software; and implementing several web-customization projects for systems like DSpace, CONTENTdm, Omeka, WordPress -using PHP, CSS, XML, XSLT, HTML5, jQuery.
