LIS Faculty and Students Active at HLA/HASL Annual Conference

LIS faculty and students will again be well represented at next month’s HLA/HASL Annual Conference, which will be held virtually via Zoom this year. Students giving presentations and poster sessions include Minyoung Chung, Lilla Faint, Jason Ford, Ashley Forester, Halie Kerns, Stephanie Robertson and CIS student Stacy Naipo. Faculty presentations include Gwen Sinclair (“Capturing Library Stories: the Past, Present, and Future in the HLA Newsletter”) and Andrew Wertheimer (“The Short and Tragic Fate of the Fushimi Japanese Collection at the Library of Hawaiʻi, 1936-1942”). You can view the conference schedule online for individual titles and dates and times.

Our own Meera Garud and Violet Harada were also busy on the conference planning committee. LIS student Stephanie Robertson is also organizing a Speed Networking event for other LIS students with local leaders.
