"Where are they now?"

The anniversary of Hurricane Katrina is next week. In some respects it is hard to believe a year has come and gone. But after attending the ALA conference in New Orleans in June and spending a day working with the Librarians Build Communites project, it is glaringly obvious in some areas it was only yesterday.

Inside Higher Ed has contacted several institutions, and people dealing with this still, and reports on how the hurricane continues to affect their lives a year later.

"With the year anniversary of Katrina approaching, Inside Higher Ed checked back in with some of the people who took time amid the chaos of the hurricane’s aftermath to talk about how the storm affected their work and lives. Nearly a year after they were first quoted in Inside Higher Ed, some of these faculty members, students and administrators have left the institution they were at when Katrina came; some are still fighting for their institutions’ survival on a daily basis; and some are busily reconstructing their research, and in some cases their homes." ~ Where are they now? 8/24/06
