I’ve been at the University of Utah since 2015, and was appointed to a four-year term as director of Digital Matters in 2018. My research and teaching interests lie in digital humanities, new media studies, and Asian American literature.

Rebekah Cummings

Digital Matters Librarian


I’ve been a librarian at the Marriott Library since 2013 and have served in a variety of roles, first as the Assistant Director of the Mountain West Digital Library (2013-2015) and later as the Data Management Librarian (2015-2018). In March 2018, I started my new position as the Digital Matters Librarian where I work closely with the Digital Matters Director and Postdoc to coordinate digital humanities research, instruction, and support at the U. My research interests are data management, digital humanities, intellectual property, and digital libraries, with particular interest where these areas of study overlap. I completed my MLIS from the University of California, Los Angeles where I was a graduate student researcher on Dr. Christine Borgman’s Knowledge Infrastructures Team.

As the Program Assistant, I coordinate Digital Matters events, create promotional content for the Digital Matters, and help facilitate operations of the space. I am also a fine arts student in honors studying ceramics to illuminate materiality as it is shaped by and shapes human practices, the texture of mediation, and intersections with affect theory.
