Carly Lamphere is a Research and Instruction Librarian, Science and Engineering at Portland State University. Her professional interests have always been audio visual adjacent largely due to growing up in the greater Los Angeles area and the film industry playing an ever present background role in her memories-from seeing film crews in her neighborhood to having teachers with agents hoping for their big break. As an English major participating in filmmaking workshops and classes using professional grade video creation software while at The University of California, Santa Barbara, as well as interning at The Paley Center for Media’s, and City University of New York Television Station’s (CUNY TV) digital archives while working on her MLIS, Carly gained a unique perspective of working with audio visual material without a formal audio visual education. Often falling into the team “film/tech” role in many of her professional library jobs, Carly enjoys helping others learn and understand new technology and how it empowers users and opens doors to information access. She is an avid supporter of incorporating video tools in librarianship. As a professional with public, special collections, and academic Library experience, Carly has used her video creation and editing skills ever since she entered the field in 2014 in her first role as a Reference and Instruction Librarian atThe Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in downtown Los Angeles. She is extremely excited to focus on public library programming and video creation in this workshop and helping fellow library workers better serve their patrons and surrounding communities.
