Question:

Discuss a challenge that libraries face today.

Answer:

One big challenge today that modern libraries are facing is how to stay relevant. Digital information is pervasive and technology is framed as a solution to physical barriers and to quick and equal access. So by design technology perceives or approaches physical space as a barrier to access that must be overcome. Thus, if information can be accessed with cheap, light technology and you can do it from anywhere, what on earth is the point of books and physical libraries? This is of course an over simplification of the issue, but it is certainly reflective of a popular opinion that librarians and libraries around the world are working on every day.

Question:

Discuss a way you approach the study of religion.

Answer:

There are lots of ways to investigate a topic. One way that I find both interesting and novel in studying religion is to look at its material artefacts. Like religious scripture, religious materials such as sacred relics possess, similarly, a kind of power or vested significance that is a source of strength, peace and inspiration, which is drawn from and protected by adherents of religion. That object, where it came from or who constructed it, and how it was constructed (i.e. what techniques, materials, etc.) are important questions that may shed light on a given religious tradition. These questions also help broaden our understanding of religion in general, which is often perceived as dogmatic, but in reality highly complex and colourful.

Subject: Digital Media

Question:

What relevance does Digital Media have for us today?

Answer:

Digital media is pervasive. It is portable, it is quickly re-produceable and it is economical. It offers people around the world access to a virtually unlimited supply of information and entertainment. But media in general and especially digital media is packaged in a way that's different from other media such as print, and that impacts how it's consumed, how it's recalled and retained, and how we act on it. And increasingly, we are beginning to see how the media shapes us individually and collectively -- that is, from the perspective of individual health all the way to public space.
