Alice Herring is a student in the Masters of Library and Information Science at UNCG and is also employed full-time in the UNCG Office of Institutional Research & Analytics as a data analyst. Her program of study is focused towards digital libraries and information resource management. In the limited free-time available to a graduate student employed full-time, she spends time with her rescue mutt, Audri, or reading something in the realm of science-fiction or fantasy.
As the social media coordinator for the Building Strong Library and Information Science Education (BSLISE) working group, she is responsible for disseminating information on international LIS education related news, workshops, webinars, and programs, and engaging with people involved with libraries and library education from across the globe. In addition to continuing the projects begun by previous interns, such as the Student Spotlight social media campaign and YouTube channel development, Alice is collaborating with BSLISE Working Group members to develop a new initiative called Student Library Voices: Peer to Peer.
