GSLIS After Dark Poster Session

Tonight, I had the opportunity to present a poster about my experience working in the library of America’s Test Kitchen at the annual GSLIS alumni event, “GSLIS After Dark.” My fellow library intern and I had put the poster together over the past few weeks; we made it as a PowerPoint slide, converted it to PDF, and had it printed by PhD Posters. It turned out really well, and we enjoyed sharing our experience with other students and alumni.

We called our poster “Books for Cooks: The America’s Test Kitchen Library,” and it had information (too small to see here) about our mission, outreach to staff, and projects we’ve tackled, like creating a library map and moving the catalog online with LibraryThing. Most people who stopped by seemed interested…of course, we also had snacks: homemade blondies from a recipe in Baking Illustrated.
