From UA Libraries Digital Services Planning and Documentation
Nitin has been a student worker with us since 2006, but was recently promoted to full time staff as Digitization Specialist. He brings remarkable audio expertise, in particular, to our team. We have been very impressed with the creativity and conscientious diligence he brings to his work. Already he is exploring methods of improving our online delivery of audio recordings, and their transcripts, to our users.
Nitin is a professional guitarist, and is completing his MS in [Library and Information Studies]. In his spare time, he maintains a website called [| The Humane Guitarist] which is dedicated to the technique and health of the classical guitarist. His musical professional expertise is irreplaceable in our audio recording and editing, and we depend on him to provide professional recommendations for workflow and equipment for new projects. In addition, he is researching audio technical metadata and best practices, such as that spelled out in [| Sound Directions], to help inform our choices and directions. Easy-going, conscientious, and always ready to help, Nitin is an invaluable member of our team.
