About the Jean Tague Sutcliffe Doctoral Student Research Poster Competition
The Doctoral Student Research Poster Competition offers doctoral students an opportunity to share information about their research projects with the LIS community. Posters will be judged on the significance of the research topic to the LIS field, the appropriateness of research design and methodology, and a concise description of the results, as well as on the organization, clarity, and aesthetics of the poster.
This competition has been established in memory of Jean Tague Sutcliffe, professor and former dean of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Western Ontario (now the Faculty of Information and Media Studies).

This award, established by students at UWO in 1997, also recognizes Professor Sutcliffe’s dedication to the education of information professionals by awarding a certificate and a $250 cash prize to the first-place winner.
Posters will be judged according to the following criteria on a scale of 1-5:
