    • Competency L
      • Understand the nature of research, research methods and research findings; retrieve, evaluate and synthesize scholarly and professional literature for informed decision-making by specific client groups
    • Stonewall Riot Monument
      • When first looking for a project for my Service Learning Project, I came across the Stonewall Resource Center on InfoIsland
      • I contacted Hypatia Dejavu to see if they had any projects they needed help with
      • Luckily, they had a project they were in the middle of that needed help
    • Stonewall Riot Monument
      • I was presented with a monument for the Stonewall Riots that needed information
      • I was asked to do some research and create a set of notecards that would be distributed
      • I spent a few days doing research online and found some good resources with basic information
    • Stonewall Riot Monument
      • Knowing that the target audience will most likely not know much about the Riot, nor care about the specific details, I used basic overviews to create the report
      • What resulted was a two page background on the Riot, which eventually became a set of four notecards
    • Stonewall Riot Monument
      • Unfortunately, I did not take any screenshots of the display
      • If you click on each slide, you can receive a copy of the notecards. One notecard per slide
    • Trans Day of Remembrance
      • In addition to my work on the Stonewall Riot Monument, I was asked to create a brief description of Trans Day of Remembrance
      • Similar to my work with the Riot notecard, I did some research and collected information about the history of the Day of Remembrance
      • Click on this slide to view the notecards
    • Notecards
    • Monument
    • Competency D
      • Apply the fundamental principles of planning, management and marketing/advocacy
    • SJSU SLIS Halloween Party
      • I was originally asked to volunteer on this project by Susie Quinn (Susie Schridde)
      • I let her know that I could do what she needed me to do for the event - create objects, advertise, etc
      • The project eventually came to the attention of Jeremy Kemp and was extended as a project for the entire class
    • SJSU SLIS Halloween Party
      • Those who volunteered to work on the project met up in the weeks following the event
      • Eventually, it grew to about 5/6 main volunteers
      • Each was assigned a specific task to perform
    • SJSU SLIS Halloween Party
      • For my part, I was tasked with creating the t-shirts, as well as manning the Primtionary booth
      • As around the date of the event I had projects coming up, it was difficult to accomplish both tasks
      • I was able to finish four variations of the shirt, and work on the booth design
    • SJSU SLIS Halloween Party
      • Before the event, I made sure to advertise the party through various social networking sites - Facebook, Twitter, Livejournal
      • I was hoping to get to the younger, more tech savvy students through these means - as they are more likely to use Second Life
    • SJSU SLIS Halloween Party
      • On the day of the event, I ended up organizing the costume contest, which turned out pretty well given I had to pick it up about 5 minutes before
      • Through this project, I definitely learned how to work collaboratively through Second Life and real life
      • I also learned how to prepare for an event and have contingency plans set
    • Advertisements
    • Costume Contest
    • Primtionary Stage
