Report from our DLP intern, Derek Quezada

July 15th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Derek Quezada, a 2011 graduate of UCLA’s Department of Information Studies at GSEIS was an intern with the Digital Library Program for Winter and Spring quarters. We asked him to write up a little summary of his excellent work. We welcome interns from GSEIS!

As a graduating library student interested in digital collections and information architecture, I was lucky to connect with the Digital Library Program. Working as their intern for the last two quarters I learned from their adaptive and hands-on approach toward the development and maintenance of digital collections. It is an experience that has proven invaluable especially as I prepare to enter the field as professional and apply all that I learned to the day to day challenges of an evolving information environment.

The Stimulus: UC’s undergraduate neuroscience journal

July 1st, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

The Stimulus is the University of California’s journal for undergraduate neuroscience. Hosted by the UCLA Digital Library Program, the journal publishes original research and review articles written by undergraduates as well as commentaries related to all aspects of neuroscience. The primary purpose of The Stimulus is to highlight the outstanding independent neuroscience research conducted by undergraduates across many different programs at the University of California. Neuroscience is itself a highly interdisciplinary field that benefits from interactions among a wide range of traditional academic disciplines, from chemistry and molecular biology to mathematics, psychology, and philosophy. As such, we encourage undergraduate students with diverse interests to submit neuroscience-related work for publication in The Stimulus. For more information about publishing your work in The Stimulus, or if you are interested in joining our staff of student reviewers and editors, please contact NUSjournal@gmail.com.
