Alice Kim and Project Manager Erenst Anip, both alumni of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library and Information Science Program, educated attendees of the 2011 Library & Information Science Poster Conference about the Hawaii Digital Newspaper project and the Chronicling America site. Alice and Erenst allowed the attendees to browse the site through a laptop and gave them brochures. The attendees mostly consisted of University of Hawaii library school students, professors, and librarians.
LIS Professor Dr. Andrew Wertheimer took pictures at the event, and they can be seen on his Flickr account (http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrew_wertheimer/tags/lisprogramposterconference2011/), which included pictures of our poster:
The poster conference took place at the Library and Information Science Program, Hamilton Library, University of Hawaii at Manoa on December 8, 2011.
Our lovely poster can be seen in the attachment (Chronicling America Poster 11.09.11.jpg) below.
Thank you Dr. Wertheimer for allowing us to post your pictures on our site!
