Guiding the Wave: Academic Librarians’ Practical Role in Digital Humanities
2013 Association of College and Research Libraries Conference
Indianapolis, IN • April 10-13, 2013
Kaetrena Davis Kendrick, M.S.L.S. • University of South Carolina Lancaster
This engaging poster session focuses on LIS-centric projects that support the mission of a digital cultural study focusing on the international development of Korean popular culture (Hallyu – Korean wave). Digital archiving, undergraduate teaching and learning, scholarly communication, social media tools, and digital documentation (digital-born preservation) are only a few of many skills an academic librarian can bring to digital humanities projects. Attendees will discuss how these skills have been applied to this unique study at a private liberal arts university.
