Janet has built strong relationships in the Quad Cities Latino community through her dedicated and impressive work for the Mujeres Latinas project. She has interviewed many Latinas and Latinos in the Quad Cities, arranged to scan historic photos in the aging LULAC Hall exhibit and assisted Kristin Baum, Assistant Conservator, in remounting the exhibit, acquired the records of LULAC Council 10 for the IWA, and acquired the papers of a number of people who have been associated with LULAC Council 10. Many photos from LULAC Council 10 and from related individuals are in the Mujeres Latinas Collection of the Iowa Digital Library.
