Connecting Theory and Practice: New Insights and Inspired Solutions
My role included organizing and moderating this group presentation with several other SJSU SLIS Circle of Learning scholars (their slides are not included). My portion of the presentation explored the idea of indigenous librarianship and recruiting indigenous people in library and information science programs. Many thanks to Heather Devine for her support and contribution, to Linda Wynne for moderating the discussion group for my topic, and especially to my Circle of Learning colleagues who co-presented with me.
Join graduate students from the Circle of Learning program at San Jose State University for a lively discussion about successes and challenges in tribal cultural institutions. Students will offer a fast-paced presentation about topics in tribal archives, libraries, and museums followed by discussion with the audience. This will generate awareness and facilitate collaborative learning between students and professionals who share mutual interests, helping to provide new insights into current issues in the field and inspire solutions or ideas about ongoing issues.
