Matt Knutzen

Director: Humanities & Social Sciences Research
New York Public Library



For the past 14 years, Matt Knutzen has overseen the collections and services of the Library’s 500,000 maps and 25,000 books and atlases. He engages with researchers, students, and scholars, providing context and insight on the use of maps in their research. Through various collaborative projects, he has helped establish a new vision for map libraries on the Web through large-scale map digitization, creating innovative public engagement map tools, and building, with the help of the public, queriable, mashable historical map databases. He holds a BA in Geography from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MFA in Painting from Pratt Institute.
