Title: National Forum on Integrating Computational Thinking into LIS Youth Services Courses
Award: $150,000
Link: https://www.imls.gov/grants/awarded/re-12-19-0094-19
Queens College and Texas Woman's University will host two participatory design workshops on integrating computational thinking (CT) into Library Information Science (LIS) youth services coursework. LIS youth services faculty have identified CT, a framework for problem solving and critical thinking skills, as a critical literacy for youth. To address these needs, an interdisciplinary faculty will collaboratively develop a framework, model curriculum, course modules, and class activities.

2. Dr. Sanchez, with colleagues form University of Pittsburgh, University of California, Irvine, Queens College, and The Pennsylvania State University have received $349k for their proposal.

Title: Diversity by Design: Scaling and Fostering Diverse and Inclusive Intergenerational Communities of Practice.
Award: $349,375
Link: https://www.imls.gov/grants/awarded/re-14-19-0054-19
A team of researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, University of California, Irvine, Queens College, and The Pennsylvania State University, will explore how underrepresented minority students develop and maintain a sense of community and belonging within cohort-based recruitment programs. The team will also look at how these experiences compare to participants' sense of community in their graduate programs and workplaces. The project will also provide recommendations for how the community developed in recruitment programs can be extended and scaled to a model of lifelong learning and support.

Congratulations to 2018-2019 Citi Center for Culture + Queens Library Fellows

posted May 15, 2019, 8:56 PM by Yichun Wu   [ updated May 15, 2019, 9:05 PM ]

Congratulations to the Citi Center for Culture + Queens Library fellowship program, which just completed its sixth year (!) with a reception at Maple Grove Cemetery to celebrate the work of this year's fellows: GSLIS students Lewis Tio (MLS/MA Dual Degree) and Carrie Jedlicka (Archives Certificate).

Lewis and Carrie worked with Kerri Anne Burke at Citi to process corporate records, and with Natalie Milbrodt, Queens Memory, and community partners to successfully secure grant funding for a preservation needs assessment of Maple Grove Cemetery's archival holdings. They were able to apply their fieldwork towards 6 credits of coursework each this year as students in LBSCI795: Internship and LBSCI791: Independent Study.

Congratulations! And many thanks to Kerri Anne and Natalie for leading this excellent fellowship program, which will run again next AY for its seventh year.
