Once again, the American Library Association (ALA) Washington Office is participating in the Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program with the University of Michigan’s Information School.

The ASB program:

Creates the opportunity for students to engage in a service-oriented integrative learning experience; connects public sector organizations to the knowledge and abilities of students through a social impact project; and facilitates and enhances the relationship between the School and the greater community.

Two master’s students will be in residence during the week of Feb 29 to March 4  here at the Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP):  Yi Yang and Lucia Lee. Yi and Lucia both focus on human computer interaction at the University of Michigan. Yi completed a master’s degree in media production and design at Indiana University and undergraduate study in journalism and digital media design at Chonqing University. Lucia completed an undergraduate program in pharmacy at Seoul National University.

Yi and Lucia will spend their week to study and provide ideas about innovative communications directions for our dissemination and outreach. Additionally, they will participate in meetings and inside-the-beltway events to get a flavor of our work generally. We look forward to their arrival.
