Biography

Kerry Jeyschune is the Digital Projects Coordinator for the South Carolina State Library. She received her BFA in Photographic Imaging Arts and Sciences with a minor in Museum Studies from the Rochester Institute of Technology and her MA in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University. Kerry has worked in collections and digitization at institutions such as the RIT Archives in Rochester, NY as well as the New Jersey State Police Museum & Learning Center in Trenton, NJ. She has digitized a range of materials such as large photographic prints and 3D sculptures to government documents and police reports like the Lindbergh Kidnapping from 1932. Kerry has also spent years working in the Circulation Department at the Ocean County Library System in New Jersey. Kerry works to digitize materials in order to provide virtual access for individuals who would otherwise be unable to see such items in person. She also works in digitization as a way to provide accessibility and inclusion for disabled patrons to have equal access to public knowledge found within collections. Kerry believes in the utilization of digital humanities in order to provide a unique way to teach history, science, art, current events, and other topics to promote and inspire deeper learning.
