This page is intended to highlight outreach materials created in professional library contexts as well as relevant LIS coursework.
Libguide for the Center for Teaching and Learning at Pratt Institute
Working with the Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Digital Learning Librarian at Pratt Institute, I created a guide to the resources available for faculty
members at Pratt Institute.
This project required me to use CSS and the LibApps platform. Through working on this project, I learned about principles relating to
copyright law and accessible web design.
Libguide for Researching Genealogy & Local History in the Bronx's "Little Italy"
I created this guide guide for novice local history researchers who are interested in learning more about Italian immigration to the Bronx, particularly the Belmont/Fordham/Morris Park area. It encourages both online and on-site research.
This served as a research guide assignment for the
Local History and Genealogy (INFO697-06) class at Pratt Institute's School of Information.
This hypothetical proposal is for a complete educational experience corresponding to the 2019 Interference Archive Exhibit “Everybody’s Got A Right To Live: The Poor People’s Campaign 1968 & Today.”
This proposal includes an outreach strategy with materials, a pre-visit activity to prepare students
for the exhibit, a full lesson plan designed for teachers (includes background information/examples of material covered within the exhibit), an activity workbook for students, and an evaluation for teachers to reflect on the students’ experience and provide feedback.
This served as the final project assignment for the Museum/Library Education and Outreach (INFO675) class at Pratt Institute's School of Information.
As a public services graduate assistant at Pratt Institute Libraries, I curated a number of themed book displays intended to showcase databases and e-resources as well as books in the collection. In creating these displays I worked to highlight the diversity of the collection, visually engage patrons, and reflect the identities, interests, and research needs of the student body.
National Poetry Month
I created this signage to communicate information and encourage use of library resources at Pratt Institute Libraries.
