Session Description

The experiences of immigrant students on college campuses may lead to feelings of exclusion or invisibility. How can academic librarians use digital scholarship programs to foster an environment of inclusion and give underrepresented students a voice? This poster showcases the approach taken by UConn through a collaborative internship between the library and the History department to help student create essays about the city of Hartford (any topic and time period) using WordPress to create the site.
