Leah's participation included a poster presentation describing the library's collaborative projects with the Taras Oceanographic Foundation. [This blog has been highlighting field research with the Palm Beach Dolphin Project, a signature program of Taras]. Below is the poster that was presented at the conference.
NOTE* Since presenting this poster, the stranding portion of the collaboration has changed, but the dolphin research continues and is expanding by initiating a monthly club for citizen awareness and science literacy.
Outreach outcomes for the conference presentation include interest by a librarian (from Florida State Univ.) in trying to initiate a similar program at their university; a connection to one of our Harriet Wilkes Honors College students, who is interested in a possible internship with Taras; and a librarian at another Florida university asking for collaborative help with science research. The conference was very successful and fulfilled our goals of outreach, information and science literacy.
