Eileen Jakeway

Eileen Jakeway is an innovation specialist on the LC Labs team, where she works in support of the Library’s Digital Strategy. One of her first projects as an innovation specialist was the Machine Learning + Libraries Summit, which explored the near-term possibilities of applying machine learning techniques in the cultural heritage sector. As a Junior Fellow for the Labs team last summer, Eileen designed and implemented an “Introduction to Digital Scholarship” workshop at the Kluge Center which can be found under her people page on labs.loc.gov. Before coming to the Library, Eileen taught high school English and earned her Master’s in Modern Languages at the University of Oxford. The Labs team will leverage Eileen’s experience in education, digital humanities, and comparative literature to explore innovative ways for the Library to enhance how we produce and disseminate knowledge across systems.
