Digital Liaisons:  Student Perspectives on Curating the Information Life Cycle

June Abbas, Jacob Carlson and Anne Diekema

ASIST 2011 Annual Meeting
New Orleans, LA, October 9-12, 2011


Summary

At national conferences for organizations such as the American Library Association and the Society of American Archivists, master's students are a visibly recognized population for whom financial and mentoring support is considered essential. Participation is also encouraged through calls for papers and posters to be featured in student-only sessions. The SIG Digital Libraries proposes a panel exclusively featuring posters and presentations by master's and undergraduate students on topics pertaining to the digital curation of user information. This event is intended to serve the purpose of attracting more master's and undergraduate students to the 2011 ASIS&T annual meeting as well as highlighting their research accomplishments.
