Noni Korf Vidal

Noni Korf Vidal is currently the Curator for Visual and Electronic Collections in the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections (RMC) at Cornell University. She has a background in filmmaking and graphic design, and an interest in human issues in technology. Vidal recently completed a masters degree in Communication at Cornell where she studied with Geri Gay and was a staff member of the Interactive Multimedia Group (IMG). Her research focus has been on user-studies and the visual arts and is reflected in her Master's thesis: Experimental image taxonomy: an inquiry into spontaneous image organization. Since joining RMC, she has completed several collaborative projects/web sites that involve faculty and student use of digitized materials from the collections of the RMC, the H.F. Johnson Museum, and the slide libraries at Cornell. Her roles on these projects has been multi-faceted, drawing on her technical, artistic, and social science interests. Recent sites include UTOPIA [ mesl.tc.cornell.edu/utopia/default.html], the Museum Educational Site-Licensing Project (MESL) [ mesl.tc.cornell.edu/MESLHOME.html], and the Ezra Cornell [ rmc-www.library.cornell.edu/ezra-exhibit/entrance.html] and Louis Agassiz Fuertes [ rmc-www.library.cornell.edu/fuertes/default.html] web exhibits. Currently she is working with the Cornell Plantations on an educational web site designed to enable both researchers and garden enthusiasts to access images and botanical data from their living collections.
