Jason A. Clark

Jason A. Clark is Head of Digital Access and Web Services at Montana State University Libraries where he builds digital library applications and sets digital content strategies. He writes and presents on a broad range of topics, including mobile design and development, web services and mashups, metadata and digitization, JavaScript, interface design, and application development. Before coming to MSU in 2005, he became interested in the intersection between libraries and technology while working as a web developer for the Division of Information Technology at the University of Wisconsin. After two years, he moved on to the web services department at Williams College Libraries. When he doesn’t have metadata on the brain, he likes to hike the mountains of Montana with his wife, Jennifer, their daughter, Piper, and their dog, Oakley.
