Raíces Cultural Center is proud to welcome Miraida Morales back to the Raíces Crew. Miraida, who is the original creator of our online archive interface, has agreed to become a member of the new Raíces Digital Archive Advisory Board. We couldn’t be more excited to work with her again!
Miraida is a Ph.D. Candidate in Library and Information Science at the Rutgers School of Communication and Information, and has a MLIS degree with a certificate in digital library technology, also from Rutgers University. As a taxonomist before pursuing the Ph.D., Miraida used her expertise in classification, taxonomy development, and data management to develop the navigational taxonomy for an eCommerce website and to design the software tool to manage that taxonomy. Prior to the MLIS, Miraida worked in trade book publishing for 8 years. During her time in the book industry, she managed export sales for a number of international regions including Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Miraida also has a M.A. in French Studies from NYU and a B.A. in Comparative Literature from the same.
Welcome back Miraida!
