  • Stuart Shieber is a professor of computer science and head of the library’s office for scholarly communications at Harvard University

Char Miller is Director of the Environmental Analysis Program at Pomona College and the W. M. Keck Professor of Environmental Analysis. He received his Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins University and B.A. from Pitzer College. He is author of a number of award-winning books and articles. Prof. Miller is a regular contributor of essays, commentary, and reviews to professional journals, newspapers, and online media; his blog, Golden Green, explores environmental issues in California and the West for KCET.org.

Prof. Miller joined the Environmental Analysis Program in 2007, after a 26-year stint at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. This Claremont Colleges intercollegiate major is deeply interdisciplinary in its focus – which means that seniors are writing theses in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Char has worked closely with the Claremont Colleges Library to open undergraduate work to the public, which has provided a “clarifying urgency” in their research and writing.

Professor Miller's talk was first given as the opening keynote speech at the USETDA Conference in July 2013.
