Paul F. Marty is a specialist in the application of advanced information technology to the study of history and, in particular, museum environments. He is currently the Director of Information Technology at the University of Illinois' Spurlock Museum (www.spurlock.uiuc.edu) and is responsible for the design, development, and implementation of advanced information systems at this museum. These systems manage the entire information flow of this growing university museum, maintain digital images and data on the 40,000 cultural and ethnographic artifacts in the museum's collections, and control such internal operating procedures as registration, conservation, education, and collections management. He holds a BS in Computer Science Engineering, a BA in History, and an MA in Ancient History, all from the University of Illinois. He has studied Classics and Ancient History at King's College, Cambridge University, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Information Science through the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois. His dissertation research is centered on an ongoing ethnographic study of the museum professionals at the Spurlock, whose roles and responsibilities in the preservation, dissemination, and interpretation of knowledge have been shaped and influenced by the integration of information technology into their unique environment. His academic projects encompass such topics as museum informatics, computer-supported cooperative work, and computer-mediated communication.
