Walter J. Ong, S.J., Center for Digital Humanities
Cuba is the IT Architect for the Walter J. Ong, S.J., Center for Digital Humanities at Saint Louis University. Notable contributions include the IIIF community (founding membership, Technical Review Committee representative), design and code for the Mirador IIIF Viewer software (and Rerum Inbox Linked Data Notification Plugin), TPEN transcription tool, and the Rerum entity annotation ecosystem. He has consulted for broad audiences, including the Botanical Heritage Library and the Federal Reserve, on considering the benefits of IIIF implementation and annotation standards. Presentations, workshops, and seminars across technical and scholarly audiences have focused on digital tool interface design and the power of annotation to encode the ambiguity of academic conversation around even non-digital and undigitized resources.
