I would first like to thank my thesis supervisors: Dr. Geoffrey Rockwell of Humanities Computing in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta; and Dr. Michael McNally of the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta.
I would also like to thank the members of my examining committee: Dr. Harvey Quamen of Humanities Computing in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta; and Dr. Tami Oliphant of the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta.
I wish to express my gratitude to the donors of the J Gordin Kaplan Graduate Student Award and the Michael Silver Memorial Travel Award in Library and Information Studies. Both awards made it possible for me to present my thesis research at the international conference for the International Association for Social Science Information Services & Technology (IASSIST), in Bergen, Norway.
I am also grateful for the generous assistance of Hedmark University College and Dr. Hans Kristian Rustad of the Department of Humanities at Hedmark University College for sponsoring my three month student exchange in Hamar, Norway; the place where I began to write my thesis in earnest.
I would also like to express my gratitude for the support, guidance, and mentorship of those who supervised my employment at the University of Alberta: Dr. Sean Gouglas of Humanities Computing, who gave me a lot of good advice and was the source of many passable puns; and the librarian Anna Bombak along with the rest of the Digital Initiatives unit in the University of Alberta Libraries, who welcomed me into the wonderful world of Data Librarianship.
Finally, I am grateful for the support of my husband, the love of my life, and my friends and family.
