A brief mention of my poster presentation in the S.I.S. Alumni e-magazine to the Board of Visitors this past October...

"Students in the LIS program are working with members of Mt. Lebanon Village (MLV), an intergenerational network of volunteers who provide support to seniors enabling them to live in their own homes and stay connected to their community. The students are developing the infrastructure for a model program that can be adapted by the other Villages throughout the US by digitizing oral history interviews of MLV members and developing metadata for the collection. The overarching goal of the project is to provide an archetype for oral history repositories deeply rooted in local communities."
