Building Digital Library Collections in Monteverde, Costa Rica

You are invited to an informal discussion on Wednesday, October 24 with Laurie Kutner, a University of Vermont (UVM) librarian and SU alum (Maxwell G’85 and iSchool G’98) who directs the SU iSchool Costa Rica summer internship project. This discussion will be held from 9:30 -10:30 a.m., in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, Bird  Library.

Laurie will talk about her experiences running the internship program, which produces small-scale digital library collections of locally-based research information generated in the Monteverde Zone.  Each year since 2008, she has been hosting 1-2 SU iSchool students for a five-week internship experience. In addition to creating digital collections, participants develop an understanding of the information challenges inherent in communities in Latin America and the Global South.

All are welcome.  Light refreshments will be served.

Co-sponsored by the SU Librarians’ Affinity Group and iSchool.
