ASIS&T Volunteer Event
ASIS&T CUA student chapter, LIS/HIT students, alumni, faculty, and their friends (Amy Chenaille, Martha Chapin, Amanda Johnson, Nfagie Kadda, Dr. Sung Un Kim, Kate Price, Katie Rodda, Sam Russell, Alisha Strother, Dr. Sue Yeon Syn, and Jessica Zeiler) volunteered at the new campus of the Washington Middle School for Girls (WMSG) on Saturday, February 8, 2014. WMSG is an independent 4-8 grades Catholic Day School located in Southeast D.C.
The group helped set up a library in the new campus and worked on cataloging, processing, shelf-reading, and shelf-signage in collaboration with Ms. Jill Gelman (Reading Specialist) and Ms. Jennifer Froetschel (Librarian Consultant, MSLIS 2013). Thank you again to all participants!
As our next activity, we are planning to co-host a group tour to the Computers in Libraries Conference Exhibition (http://www.infotoday.com/cil2014/
) in collaboration with AGLISS and SLA CUA Student Chapter. Please stay tuned for more information.
