Kyle Conner & Rebecca Carter, MSI students at the University of Michigan School of Information, http://si.umich.edu, have secured $500 of grant funding, from the Ginsberg Center for Service Learning, to make a week-long trip to New Orleans over winter break to reclaim archival materials from the mud.
Their goal is to take 4 - 6 students on their service project, but they need more funding. I'm a broke student, but I will throw in to DOUBLE their current funds if you will, too! I will put pledges in contact with Kyle & Rebecca to arrange delivery of funds.
