LIS 659 Students Process JCCH Papers

Jill Sommer’s students in LIS 659: Archival Access, Representation and Use processed papers from the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i’s Archives. The class is shown with JCCH Archives Manager Gail Kuroda and Adjunct faculty Jill Sommer after making their final presentations. Students made recommendations for preservation, privacy protection, and how these collections could be used for research and outreach. The students drafted finding aids that eventually can be accessed using JCCH’s online catalog. The class presentations clearly demonstrated how important it is to have trained archivists with diverse local knowledge. In the photo: Gail Kuroda is directly behind the cart. From left to right behind Gail are Johanna Sadorra, Jasmine Malone, Jennifer Duncklee, Jill Sommer (Instructor), Alohalani Paakaula-Lozier, Hoʻoleina Ioane, and Ani Kawada.
