Laue leads Cal Ag into digital future
Andrea Laue joined California Agriculture journal as Web Editor on Aug. 1, 2007. Laue is leading a new digital publishing initiative to digitize copies of the journal dating back to 1946, and to redesign the information architecture of the journal's Web site. She will also work on increasing the journal's exposure in research databases and popular search engines such as Google. “California Agriculture content should be more findable, retrievable and usable online very soon,” Laue says. In concert with California Agriculture and Communication Services staff, Laue is implementing a comprehensive proposal that integrates the ideas and skill sets of collaborating staff.
Laue earned her Ph.D. in English and Digital Humanities from the University of Virginia in 2006. She has worked on several scholarly digital publishing projects, including the Mark Twain Project Online at UC Berkeley. Laue can be reached at (510) 642–2431, ext. 16, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
