News from the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, The iSchool at The University of British Columbia

Vancouver, Canada

 

The work of faculty and students at the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, The iSchool at The University of British Columbia, is gaining some national and international attention.

The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada has chosen to feature faculty member Dr. Luciana Duranti's research in its spotlight on The University of British Columbia. One of three projects featured for UBC, the article notes the work involves developing guidelines "for the creation, maintenance and preservation of digital records.” The article then provides a link for readers to learn more at Dr. Duranti's research page on the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council site. SSHRC is the Canadian federal agency that promotes and supports postsecondary-based research and training in the humanities and social sciences.

 

Just across the border from us, The Canadian Studies Center has featured Fulbright Scholar Jill Woelfer, a visiting graduate student this year at the iSchool, on its website. Jill is a PhD candidate at the University of Washington iSchool, where she is investigating the socio-technical aspects of information systems, studying the experiences people have using facebook or mobile applications. The site links to a full article on her research.
