Anna Naruta-Moya, Ph.D.

Anna Naruta-Moya, Ph.D., works on how the information in archives can become more effectively accessible. As an archivist for the US National Archives and for the Hoover Institution Archives of Stanford University, she has experience in the paper version of “big data.” Now as archivist for the State of New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, she manages archival collections that include documentation of the state’s hundreds of thousands of images of rock art and a diversity of architecture and landscapes both ancient and contemporary. Concern for the ability to share and communicate about objects from different repositories and create projects with longevity led her to join the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) community to help create shared applications for archival collections, and she looks forward to implementing Open Annotation in the Indigenous Digital Archive collaborative project ( ). Anna earned her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and served as board member and chair of the Landmarks Board of Oakland, California, a Certified Local Government.  Anna is a Society of American Archivists (SAA) Certified Digital Archives Specialist, a Certified Archivist of the Academy of Certified Archivists, and serves on the SAA's Archival Standards Committee. She was a fellow of the 2015 Getty Summer Institute in Digital Humanities, is a Research Associate Professor of the University of New Mexico, and is married to the Tewa artist Daniel Moya (P’o Suwae Ge Owingeh).
