The Sound of Library Science

At North Carolina State University Libraries, under the stewardship of LJ Mover & Shaker Jason Evans Groth, the belief is that harnessing the power of imagery and sound to build on research is important. “A well-organized non-written piece of communication about research in which we’re invested hasn’t lost any value,” says Groth, User Experience Librarian for Digital Media. “If anything, it’s more valuable — and research is just one person’s daydream unless it’s accessible.” If you detect a hint of the artist in Groth’s characterization about research, there’s good reason.

Media librarian Jason Evans Groth builds bridges between traditional scholarship and multimedia projects to give North Carolina State University (NCSU) students and faculty the tools to grow their digital media literacy. As a result, they’ve been able to reach a larger audience beyond traditional research papers and journals. “If we attempt to harness the power of digital media, we can use it to make learning more interactive and impactful, teaching more interesting and engaging, and research sharing more applicable to our audiences,” Evans Groth says.
