On Friday, March 24th the Department held its annual colloquium talk. This year, we highlighted the great interdisciplinary work between DLIS and the Media Arts and Sciences Program along with important community partnerships with Bethel Church, the Indiana State Archives, and Indiana State Library.
The abstract describes the panel talk:
Within weeks of a plan to close the doors on the Indianapolis Bethel AME (African Methodist Episcopal) Church, faculty and an alumnus from the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI worked to save the historic church’s troves of archival documents and objects. Out of this significant contribution to the city’s storied past comes something for the future- a virtual 3-D walk-through of the church that will be open for public use- re-created by faculty and students from the School of Informatics and Computing.
