Arden Kirkland


Arden Kirkland is an MSLIS candidate at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University, where she has already completed a CAS in Digital Libraries.

Arden’s MSLIS work builds upon her MFA, building digital collections for teaching with material culture and helping communities in the Arts and Humanities to recognize the value of their research data and make it available for inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional reuse.
