ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

This paper presents how one professor within St. John’s University’s Division of Library and Information Science (DLIS) program utilizes the Academic Service-Learning pedagogy, a classroom/experiential site-based program that requires students to perform community service that benefits the common (public) good and uses that service to illustrate course concepts. Students are taught in class how to digitize and describe cultural heritage objects. Then, utilizing the AS-L platform, students gain practical experience in engaging in the process of information representation utilizing the concept of Social Justice, with an eye toward providing a voice for the under- and misrepresented.
