Past B2A Activities

Beyond Books Conference

The B2A grant received an additional funding pool to support student attendance and conference multimedia products at the Beyond Books: News, Literacy and Democracy for America’s Libraries meeting held at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology Media Lab April 6-7th, 2011 (http://journalismthatmatters.org/biblionews/). The meeting, organized by Bill Densmore, director/editor of the Media Giraffe Project at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, brought together 130 journalists, librarians and interested citizens to examine the intersection of journalism and librarianship and to encourage community engagement in areas important to both professions. The grant supplement helped to defray the attendance costs of 30 individuals (primarily graduate students with expressed interests in the themes of the meeting) from around the country. Two of the attendees were SOIS doctoral students, including the first B2A fellow, Liza Barry-Kessler.
