John Unsworth is the University Librarian and Dean of Libraries at UVA, where he is responsible for making yesterday’s information available tomorrow, as well as today. He is also a Professor in the English Department, where he aspires to teach digital humanities and his “stealth bibliography” course, 20th-Century American Bestsellers.

John's research is in cyberinfrastructure for the humanities, and since 2008 that work has focused on helping to develop the HathiTrust Research Center, which now provides computational access to all of the 4 billion pages in the HathiTrust collection, including the 65% that is in copyright.
