Kimberley Bugg Presents on Black Pop Culture
Kimberley Bugg, Information and Research Assistance team leader, presented a paper, “Fade to Black Popular Culture: An Electronic Annotated Index,” at the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association annual conference in Boston on April 13. Bugg’s paper “detailed the electronic annotated index with audible auto commentary on black popular culture.” Her presentation was part of the roundtable, “Embracing Engagement: Popular Technology and Academic Library Information Portals” and her project was partially funded by an award from the American Library Association (ALA) Carnegie-Whitney Grant.
Bugg serves as the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Popular Cultures convener for the discussion group that focuses on “hot topics.” She is the outgoing ACRL Arts Film/Broadcast Studies convener. In the last two years the group has sponsored talks dealing with ethical and legal issues related to Netflix and streaming video and copyright cases involving Georgia State University.
Bugg was also the chair of the ACRL Section Membership Committee.
Since joining the Library in December 2011, Bugg has actively explored alternative service and scheduling models and participated in social media committee work at Falvey.
