Cristy Danford

Academic Systems Technologist


IMATS , Library


I develop and maintain technical infrastructure for BLAIS and the Centers at Milstein. My work includes:

  • system and web hosting administration, associated policy
  • inventory, licensing, and technical support for academic technologies
  • support and development for system migrations 
  • assistance with other digital projects

My focus is on digital content management and systems implementation. Prior to joining Barnard, I managed digital collections for a research library, provided development for an open source image management system, managed a public library branch, and administered library systems in both academic and public libraries. I have a BA from Bowling Green State University and an MLIS from Wayne State University.

I enjoy assisting others in reaching their technical goals, and I love working on a variety of digital project types. If you have any questions or invitations to collaborate, please feel free to reach out.
