Hi everyone! My name is Chava Spivak-Birndorf, and I’m a new graduate intern at the Weigle Information Commons. In the short time I’ve been here so far, I’ve been impressed by everything WIC does to bring innovative uses of technology and digital media to the Penn community. WIC just turned 10 on April 5th, and I’m excited to join in as we celebrate everything that we love about WIC!
If you’ve visited our website recently, you may have seen our new interactive timeline. My coworker Lahari showed me TimelineJS, an open-source tool that allows users to create interactive timelines using a Google spreadsheet. Last year, Lahari used TimelineJS to start working on a timeline of notable events at WIC. With WIC coming up on double digits, it seemed like the perfect time to finish the timeline and share WIC’s story.
