Kristin Jensen is the project manager for Book Traces @ UVA, a research project jointly directed by preservation librarian Kara McClurken and English professor Andrew Stauffer. The goal of Book Traces @ UVA is to find and catalog books in the Alderman collection that have been uniquely modified by past readers (e.g. with marginalia or insertions).

Before joining the Alderman Library staff, Kristin worked as a project manager at Performant Software Solutions in downtown Charlottesville, where she specialized in steering digital humanities projects through the software development process. Kristin holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of Virginia with a concentration in eighteenth-century British literature. She worked for several years at the University of Virginia’s Morris Law Library. Among other special projects for the Law Library, she edited The Diary of a Dean: Excerpts From the Private Journal of William Minor Lile. She has also worked at Alderman Library’s former Electronic Text Center and at NINES.
