As part of an IMLS grant, Pratt is providing professional development for the Librarians of Tomorrow (LoT), high school interns at Brooklyn Public Library branches. LoT interns also receive professional development such as workshops on preparing for college, writing resumes, working with the public, using tech for school and work, etc. Workshop curricula were developed in LIS 673 in fall 2017 in collaboration with Professor Hochman. In Spring 2018, Pratt students facilitated workshops for Brooklyn Public Library’s LoT interns. This presentation will describe the process, and even include the voices of the teens themselves (ideally!).
The focus of this project is to visually represent the virtual path information on the internet must follow in order to complete a request. This way, every stop that information takes to get to and back from its destination is clear to the viewer. In clearly representing this, it will allow for people to understand the way that information travels in that process.
To celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this digital humanities project maps the letters in both Frankenstein and Dracula providing a representation of Gothic literature during the 19th Century.
