Virtual Magic Show Fundraiser for the Santa Ana Ebell Club

I’m joining Naathan Phan and more Broadway on Tour friends for a virtual show on Nov 22nd at 2pm to raise funds for the historic Ebell Club where the theatre group resides. Tickets are $10 and you’ll be supporting the maintenance and repair of this local historic venue.

I am honored and grateful to be a part of this event. I grew up doing theater at this local historic venue and hope you can join us as we help to raise funds to keep it here.

Center for Digital Archaeology Training Tips Blog Series

While I was interning for the Center for Digital Archaeology (CoDA), I wrote a series of short blogs based on a few of their webinar classes. This was a fun learning experience for me, because some of these topics were things I knew nothing about. It is always humbling to me how a little bit of knowledge can spark brand new hobbies and interests.

Creating a Gift for the Future: Digitization Using Omeka.net

“Creating a Gift for the Future: Digitization Using Omeka.net”, April 22, 2016

Contributors: Alexandria Jones, Blanca Drapeau, Cathlyn Garibay, KayCie Voigt, Nicole Martensen, Victoria Bruner, Xi K. Bromley

A Collaborative poster describing online exhibit creation. Presented at the Humboldt State University 2016 Ideafest symposium.

“The Library Scholar Internship team is digitizing historically significant objects from the library’s Special Collections. This process involves more than scanning objects, but publishing to a broader research community using Omeka.net to create digital exhibits. In this poster we discuss our process creating metadata, scanning procedures, researching the collections and publicizing our work. Our goal is to encourage students and faculty to use the library’s resources such as Collaboration Stations, SkillShops, librarians, computer labs, #mondopad and peers to improve and publish their research. The library is a dynamic space for students to work on innovative and collaborative projects.”
