Using Maker/Web Technology to Bring Student Created Comics to Life
Angelo Letizia , Notre Dame of Maryland University; Matthew Treskon, Loyola Notre Dame Library

In this presentation, we highlight the potential of student created comics to grapple with issues pertaining to citizenship in the information age. We also examine the use of makerspace technologies to bring aspects of the student created comic to life. The library has partnered with the faculty member on this creative endeavor by providing instruction on the basics web and makerspace technologies, facilitating the development of a co-designed WordPress site, and providing access to makerspace equipment. The library believes that such support is fully within the mission of the library as it supports two frames of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education: first, authority is constructed and contextual, second, information creation is a process.

Mining Memory: Using OHMS and Omeka to preserve the stories of the Anthracite Coal Region
Courtney Hugo, Danville High School

The Anthracite Coal Region of Pennsylvania has a rare history due to the different nationalities who immigrated to work in the coal mines. Once a booming city, Shamokin, Pennsylvania, as well as the surrounding towns, struggled when the mining and other industries left the area. The people who experienced this change have stories to tell about what it was like growing up in the coal region and the importance of their community and faith. In the spring of 2018, Bucknell University Professor Katherine Faull was approached by Father Martin Kobos of the Franciscan Friars of Mother Cabrini Friary with a project to help preserve the stories of the people from the Mother Cabrini Catholic parish. Students in Professor Faull’s HUMN 330 class traveled to Shamokin to meet with volunteers willing to be interviewed about their lives. Explore how tools like the University of Kentucky’s Oral History Metadata Synchronizer (OHMS), StoryMapJS, and Omeka were used to preserve and share these important stories.
