Douglas (Doug) Wayman is a faculty librarian and head of the Electronic Resources and Collection Metadata Management Unit (ERCMM). Doug joins the unit's talented team working principally to create, transform, and remediate metadata to support multiple applications across the Libraries' resource description, discovery, and systems landscape, applying knowledge of metadata standards and information technology processes to support loading both batches and individual records supplied by vendors and/or locally curated metadata. Members of this unit support the Library's mission to promulgate e-resources first in order to provide cost-effective resources to Notre Dame users optimizing access to a richer, broader range of resources than could be provided practically with tangible resources only. The chief principles driving this unit are metadata quality and enhanced access for users.
Doug has an M.L.I.S. from Florida State University, along with a certificate in Information Architecture, and a B.G.S. from Gonzaga University, with a concentration in Organizational Leadership.
