Old Books Gain New Life: Michigan Library Scholars 2018

My experience as a Michigan Library Scholar during the summer of 2018. The project entitled "Asian Studies Centers Publication Program" had the goal of making backlist publications in Asian Studies from the University of Michigan Press more widely available. Through this program, I was able to gain new experiences and learning opportunities through the library, Michigan Publishing, and the Michigan Press.

My Time as Michigan Library Scholar

This past summer, I was a part of the Michigan Library Scholars program, where I worked a librarian mentor to complete a capstone project with a global or international focus. My project was the International News Resources Assessment Project, whose goal was to explore the kinds of news content the library is able to provide, more effectively document the process of acquiring international news resources, and have a better of understanding of the news landscape internationally.
