Congratulations Anna Nakano-Baker
Ethnic Studies Alumni Anna Nakano-Baker was admitted to the University of Washington’s Library and Information Science 2016 graduate cohort at the Seattle Campus. Anna expects to graduate in the winter of 2018, at which point she will seek employment in the Portland area, Oregon, or the larger NW region.
Anna hopes to specialize in historical archival or academic librarianship. She is excited by Washington’s course offerings regarding diversity and cultural inclusion in archiving, as well as the number of scholarships encountered, focusing on promoting the inclusion of under-represented ethnic groups in archival and librarianship. Library and Information Science is currently and traditionally a very white practice, and I am encouraged to see the school and regional professional groups concerting efforts to change that.
