Marsha Miles recently joined the staff of the Michael Schwartz Library at Cleveland
State University as the Digital Initiatives Librarian. Previously, she managed a variety
of collaborative digital projects at The College of Wooster and assisted in the creation
of online collections and exhibits at Oberlin College. 

As the Digital Initiatives Librarian, Marsha contributes to the creation and maintenance
of the Michael Schwartz Library’s digital initiatives including the Cleveland Memory
Project and EngagedScholarship@CSU. She also coordinates the integration of metadata
creation, use and practices throughout the library to enable discoverability of the
Library’s digital resources. 

Marsha is also a photographer, and her art background earned her the role of Cleveland
State University contact for Octavofest. CSU is one of the founding members of
Octavofest, which includes events throughout Northeast Ohio celebrating the book and
paper arts every October. 

Marsha has a Bachelor of Science in Photo-Illustration and Master of Library and
