This Drupal site to track volunteer hours/transactions and provide a digital literacy knowledge base for the Urbana Free Library Tech Volunteers was my Practicum project at GSLIS.
I started a nonprofit consultancy to work with local and regional nonprofits in Central Illinois to help them use the web and social media more effectively. These projects are representative of that work.
In my first really sustained dive into the library literature I looked into the current state of public computing in libraries and the policy and funding environments that surround it.
As part of Alternative Spring Break, I had the opportunity to spend a week at the Tuscola Public Library, shadowing the head librarian and volunteering.
The CI Club is a student group dedicated to putting the concepts and skills we learned in the Community Informatics program at GSLIS into practice in the local community.
I was part of a group class project in which we designed and built two public computing labs in East St. Louis, IL, one at Pirtle’s Variety, and the other at The Word Cafe and Christian Bookstore.
