Rachel Fellman, Emporia State University SLIM student, a busy summer…

Rachel Fellman

Current SLIM student, Rachel Fellman, is having a very busy summer:

She had an article published – http://www.inthelibrarywiththeleadpipe.org/2018/life-now/

“Life-now: James Tiptree, Joanna Russ, and the Queer Meaning of Archives.”

As the Assistant Archivist at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in California, she is presenting at the annual Society of American Archivists Conference in Washington, D.C., in August. She is one of the three “exceptional emerging professionals”, and the topic of her talk will be based on the article above – “Life-now: James Tiptree, Joanna Russ, and the Queer Meaning of Archives.”

She is also presenting two sessions at the 2018 Comic-Con Conventions. One talk is part of a panel, “Peanuts Family Album”; and the other is “Snoopy Space Traveler: The History and Future of Snoopy and NASA.”

Oregon Library Association 2017 Conference

Oregon’s Library Association (OLA) 2017 Conference will be held April 19-22, 2017, in Salem, Oregon. This year’s OLA theme is “Thriving Together.” The inspiration for this came about as a way to honor the inclusion of our friends and members at the Oregon Association of School Libraries by expanding this year’s conference with an additional Saturday program, which the OLA hopes everyone will enjoy.

Online Northwest 2012 #onw12 @skrug

After attending Online Northwest 2012 #onw12 it really hit home how important conferences are to students when I read this blog post from Hack Library School. Steve Krug @skrug gave the keynote on usability studies and his book Don’t Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability. Other favorite sessions included talks on ebooks, e-readers, usability studies and digital collection discovery. Our program director Perri Parise made an appearance  and Alyssa Vincent a fellow SLIM student/graduate also gave a lighting talk. The food was awesome too. Thanks for a great conference!

InfoCamp PDX 2012

InfoCamp PDX 2012 went off without a hitch and I found it quite enjoyable. The areas outside of library science that librarians can wander into are indeed interesting! Jason Sack gave the keynote on User Experience Design and was followed by others including sessions on taxonomy, media literacy, “wow” experiences in UX and many more. I’m already looking forward to next year!
