Peter Gorman, head of the UW Digital Collections Center, played a lead role in such pioneering projects as the Icelandic Online Dictionary; Todd Michelson-Ambelang is subject librarian in Memorial Library for, among other fields, Scandinavian humanities, and teaches in the Nordic program on campus.
