E08 Podcast: An Interview with Abby Clobridge, Associate Director of Research & Knowledge Services - Kennedy School Library, Harvard University

This fifteen minute podcast features an interview with Abby Clobridge, Associate Director of Research & Knowledge Services - Kennedy School Library, Harvard University. The conversation was recorded at the EDUCAUSE 2008 Annual Conference, where Clobridge was presenting the session, "The World War II Poster Project: Building Information Literacy Through Collaboration." The audio for this recording is a bit muffled due to conditions in the interview room.

Abby Clobridge is currently the Associate Director for Research and Knowledge Services at the Harvard Kennedy School Library. From 2003 to March 2009, she was the head of the digital library program at Bucknell Univerrsity where she oversaw the university's digital asset management program, digitization projects, the institutional repository, and metadata production. Abby has over ten years of experience working in library/information science. Prior to joining Bucknell, she worked at CNN as an investigative researcher and news librarian.

Abby and her colleague, David Del Testa (Assistant Professor, Department of History, Bucknell University) won the 2009 ACRL Instruction Section Innovation Award for their development of the World War II Poster Project. This project was a collaborative effort among students, faculty, librarians, archivists, and instructional technologists. Under the project team's guidance, students worked hands on with artifacts, learned information literacy and technology skills, and ultimately created a small digital collection of images of the objects they worked with.
