Digital Liaisons: Shifting Borders in Interdisciplinary Collaborations
Special Interest Group Digital Libraries June Abbas, Tina Jayroe, Michael Leach, Student Presenters

Sunday, 5:30pm


Summary

As the line between libraries and other information environments starts to blur with digital initiative collaborations, so do the distinctions between specific professions, roles, and duties within these contexts. Given the changing landscape, up-and-coming professionals at the undergraduate and master’s degree level as well as recent graduates are greatly impacted by these innovations. Providing these early professionals with a venue for showcasing their budding expertise is critical for continuing this cycle of innovation. The proposed session features posters and presentations from undergraduate and  master's students and early professionals which highlight their research, contributions and professional experiences related to the evolution and shifting borders of digital information environments.
