Kristy Golubiewski-Davis is the Digital Humanities Librarian at the University of California Santa Cruz, where she manages the Digital Scholarship Commons. The DSC is committed to creating opportunities for students to integrate digital tools into their learning as well as developing and maintaining spaces that foster experimentation and innovation. Kristy trains student staff in a variety of digital exhibit, basic 3D modeling, mapping, and digitization tools to support student classroom assignments developed in partnership with faculty. She also provides workshops and one on one consultation for researchers interested in getting started with digital projects. She provides consultation and support for faculty interested in incorporating digital exhibit building or VR experiences into their pedagogy.
Prior to working at UCSC, Kristy held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Middlebury College working in the Digital Liberal Arts program. She received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of Minnesota, where she developed 3D scanning and printing skills and worked with the Anthropology Lab to create a digital exhibit of their 3D models in a time before Sketchfab and Thingiverse. Her dissertation focused on connecting measurable aspects of bronze swords to communities of knowledge during the Late Bronze Age (circa 1400-800 BC). Throughout her work, she has been an advocate for working with 3D and digital technologies both for research, outreach, and education purposes.
