Cathy Marshall
PRINCIPAL RESEARCHER
.

Cathy Marshall is a Principal Researcher in MSR's Silicon Valley Lab.

Cathy's research on personal information management lies in the disciplinary interstices of computer science, information science, and the humanities. Her interests include crowdsourcing; personal digital archiving; personal and collaborative information management; how people use and share encountered information; how people read, annotate, navigate through, and interact with ebooks and other digital material; and spatial hypertext.

For anything you don't find here, please see Cathy Marshall's homepage at the Center for the Study of Digital Libraries at Texas A&M University; there you will find a more complete list of her publications, essays, fiction, and links to her blog and her twitter feed.

Her book about reading on the screen, Reading and Writing the Electronic Book, published by Morgan & Claypool (2009), includes chapters on annotation, reading as a social activity, and thoughts about going beyond the print book (see a review).
