We are proud to announce that Alix Keener, our Digital Production Assistant here at MPublishing and an MSI student at the UM School of Information, has been awarded a DLF Forum Fellowship. The fellowship provides generous financial assistance for attendance at the DLF Fall Forum (November 3-5, 2012 in Denver, CO), an important opportunity to meet digital library professionals and learn about the latest developments in the field.
Alix joined MPublishing in June 2010, and she works on digital conversion and production for the ACLS Humanities E-Book project. As a graduate student, Alix is currently specializing in Library & Information Science. Her interests include digital preservation, digital publishing, and scholarly communication. Thanks to the DLF Forum Fellowship, Alix looks forward to experiencing the DLF Fall Forum as both a publishing professional and as a new graduate student.
