Anne Gilliland is a professor of Information Studies and Moving Image Archive Studies and chair of the UCLA Department of Information Studies. She is also the director of the Center for Information as Evidence and of the MLIS Specialization in Archival Studies program.
Anne Gilliland’s research in archival informatics concentrates on points where issues relating to record-keeping, accountability, enterprise and societal memory intersect with technology within and across organizational, community and disciplinary domains. At a broader level, her work examines how this area can be instrumental in building and furthering archival research, theory, professional practice and education as well as the archival role as it is perceived and is instrumental in society.
