Summer 2015 Presentations by Library Faculty and Academic Professionals

Over the summer, Library Faculty and Academic Professionals were busy presenting all over the world. The topics were as wide-ranging as the innovative addition of video studios in libraries to how oral history plays an important role in collective memory. Some other topics included digital humanities, preserving and searching data, and the many ways librarianship and instruction intersect. The list that follows highlights the places and topics covered by librarians at conferences this summer beyond those at the ALA Annual Conference, as covered in a previous post.
