Erin Mundy, 2020 Showcase
: This project includes a detailed Outreach/Marketing plan and reflections regarding the Digital Humanities Initiative at San Diego State University (SDSU). The included reflection reviews and discusses the professional literature related to the topics of utilizing infographics for advertising purposes. Moreover, this analysis makes suggestions in reference to providing a specific (and ideal) marketing plan for an academic institution offering a new technological center and collaborative research program. The Outreach/Marketing artifact is a mission-driven infographic which encapsulates the myriad innovative spaces, technologies, and activities that the Digital Humanities Initiative invites students and faculty alike to use in order to develop research and collaboration across campus.
Erin Mundy: I am an SJSU iSchool student who currently resides in beautiful San Diego County. I graduated with my BA in English at SDSU, where I happily discovered and fostered my passion and advocacy for the Digital Humanities. Over the years, many interdisciplinary educational opportunities and makerspace volunteer programs that I have been involved with have also greatly influenced my enthusiasm for digital initiatives and research collaborations. In this way, I am excited and motivated to undertake and perform the dynamic information professional role, and create a positive impact at an academic library community in the near future.
