Fulgham (People in the News)

01 Mar 2018 11:14 AM | CAROL GREEN (Administrator)



Carla Fulgham , Library Assistant at the Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library (a branch of First Regional Library), has been selected to present her paper  Hashtags and Instalove: A Webometric Analysis of Academic Special Collections on Instagram  at the international Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries (QQML) Conference this May in Chania, Crete.


Her research will use quantitative methods to analyze strategies for academic special collections on Instagram, including popular hashtags, and frequency and type of posts. Instagram's emphasis on visual content and its appeal to a young, diverse demographic make it an excellent platform for special collections to engage university students in rare books and other attractive collections. This research will contribute to best standards for academic special collections using, or interested in using, Instagram as a social media platform.


Carla will graduate this May from the University of Southern Mississippi with an MLIS and a certification in archives and special collections.
