Jasmine Mulliken

Jasmine Mulliken (@jasminemulliken) is the Digital Production Associate, a role that primarily involves working with projects that have already been accepted for publication. With a PhD in English from the University of Texas and 5 years experience as an Assistant Professor teaching Literature and Composition at Oklahoma State University, she is the newest member of the program. Her responsibilities include evaluating the technology powering each project to ascertain its sustainability and its amenability to current and developing archiving and preservation methods. To guide authors and developers to such objectives, she produces the Press’s digital project guidelines and recommendations on platforms, coding standards, and documentation of development and labor contribution. She also coordinates the production workflow, which involves managing the projects’ hosting environments, consulting with contracted authors and developers on projects’ technical attributes, cataloging and registering projects with identifying metadata, advocating for improvement in classification vocabularies for born-digital work, and working with Stanford University Libraries to identify and establish archiving solutions for each project’s unique needs and formats.
