On May 30, SLIS alumni gathered for a learning and networking event entitled “Information, Inspiration, Innovation: Technology Trends in Information Management” at Troy Public Library. A recording of the presentations is available at online!

Alumni and faculty gathered and enjoyed presentations by:

Kiron Johnson (MLIS ’16) and Stephanie York (MLIS ’15) of Quicken Loans, a division of Rock Ventures. They shared the project DetroitStockCity.com – a collection of digital images of Detroit taken by Rock Ventures photographers and curated by the Rock Ventures Digital Asset Management Team.

David J. Moore (MLIS ’15) from Carhartt, Inc. shared his adventures in creating a digital archive from scratch using OneDrive by Microsoft. He explained process and hints and tips that have helped his team as they work collaboratively in OneDrive.

Attendees watch a presentation at Troy Public Library.

Dr. Hermina Anghelescu, SLIS faculty member, discussed international librarianship and the opportunities, issues, and adventures that await those who choose to work or volunteer in other countries. She also discussed the many international library organizations that exist and ways to participate in those groups.

SLIS would like to thank alumnae Cathleen Russ (MLIS ’03), Director of Troy Public Library and her library staff for their assistance in preparing for the alumni event!
