For the Winter event in the LAUC-R Brown Bag Professional Series, Kat Koziar and David Rios will give a presentation on Wednesday, February 19, from 12:00 – 1:00 in Rivera Library, Room 140.
David and Kat will speak on Supporting “Along the Chaparral: Memorializing the Enshrined.”
“When UC Riverside partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program on a multi-year, federally-commissioned project called Along the Chaparral: Memorializing the Enshrined, Principal Investigator Allison Hedge Coke asked Data Librarian Kat Koziar to build the foundation for the project’s data management” (UCR Library News, May 8 2019). Kat used this opportunity to provide a wider array of library support that included recruiting Special Research Projects Director David Rios to assist with local history and archival genealogical research. Along the Chaparral has multiple outputs, including two print anthologies, a film, a documentary, live performances, and an interactive GIS app that shares the life stories of more than 1,000 individuals interred at Riverside National Cemetery.
Join us on the 19th as our colleagues fill us in on the pivotal roles they played in this unique collaborative project.
