Study in London this summer!
 Please distribute to your students.  


An exciting opportunity to earn six graduate LIS credits while living in central London is being offered by the Florida State University School of Library and Information Studies.  Two multimedia production courses, taught by Dr. Nancy Everhart from July 8 to July 29, 2013 at the FSU London Centre, will use this dynamic city and the surrounding areas as a backdrop for creating projects such as podcasts, social networking sites, blogs, short films, and digital photography.  No prior experience with these media is required. All classes will be field trip based. There are online requirements before and after the time in London.
Other pertinent information:
 
·      The two courses are: LIS 5313 -Digital Media: Concepts and Production and LIS 5362 – Design and Production of Networked Multimedia. Participants must take both courses and they will be focused on application of media to libraries and teaching and learning. Students will have the opportunity to apply course material to their current work situation if desired, or to build a professional portfolio.
 
·      The FSU London Centre is housed in a 17th century building that FSU owns in the heart of 'literary London' and within walking distance to the shopping district and to the West End theater district.  It is less that one block from the British Museum and a tube stop.  Students are housed in flats at the Centre or in nearby Bloomsbury.
 
·      Day trips to Paris, Oxford, and the Warner Brothers “Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour” in Leavesdon are included. In Paris we’ll visit the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, enjoy French cuisine and a cruise on the Seine. Students can extend their stay in Paris for a full weekend. 
 
·      Many field trips are tied to settings of children’s stories like Harry Potter, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and Mary Poppins.  Visits to famous landmarks including Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, Kensington Palace, Abbey Road, Hyde and Regent’s Parks, the British Library and numerous museums form the backdrop for media projects.
  
·      Cost is $5895 for both in-state and out-of-state participants.  The fee includes all registration and instructional costs for 6 graduate credit hours; travel on the Eurostar from London to Paris; all admissions to program social/cultural activities; welcome and farewell meals; health insurance; international student ID card; T-shirt; full-time academic and administrative support.  
 
·      Airfare, other meals, books and supplies are not included in the cost.
 
·      Credits earned in this program may be later transferred into the master’s degree program at FSU for students who may be accepted at a future date.  These offerings are regularly offered graduate courses.
 
·      Extra time is budgeted for travel on your own.
 
·      Deadline to register is December 5, 2012. ($100 deposit is needed to reserve your spot.) 
 
·      This program is open to students from other universities who may wish to transfer the credits, or to non-students (school librarians, teachers, other librarians or IT professionals) who are interested in this exciting summer opportunity for professional development continuing education credits.

*Powering Search: The Role of Thesauri in New Information Environments*

By Ali Shiri



Published on behalf of the American Society for Information Science and
Technology

by Information Today, Inc. (ASIS&T Monograph Series)

http://books.infotoday.com/asist/Powering-Search.shtml

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the role of thesauri in
search user interfaces across a range of information search and retrieval
systems—from bibliographic and full-text databases to digital libraries,
portals, open archives, and content management systems. It takes a new
approach to thesauri by examining, analyzing and synthesizing perspectives,
projects, practices, and services from a variety of communities who share
an interest in thesauri, including search behavior, usability studies,
search user interfaces, information architecture, and interactive
information retrieval. The book addresses and examines the ways in which
information retrieval thesauri, with sophisticated semantic networks, have
been and are currently being used in a wide variety of web-based search and
browsing user interfaces. Furthermore, the book provides a detailed
discussion of empirical evaluations as well as usability studies that have
made use of thesauri by a broad range of users, from online search
specialists, indexers, and catalogers to end-users.

"I'm really impressed! A unified vision of the enhancement of searching
vocabulary throughout the current information technology world. Beautifully
written, comprehensive, and revealing of the many possible uses of
vocabulary enhancement in improving online searches." —Marcia J. Bates,
editor, *Understanding Information Retrieval Systems**.***

"A brilliant synthesis that explains how controlled vocabularies and
thesauri can be integrated with search systems to dramatically improve
findability and the overall user experience. ... a must read for all
information architects!" —Peter Morville, co-author, *Search Patterns:
Design for Discovery**.*

"This book is a significant contribution to the information management
literature. As a reference book it is extremely well documented; lots of
examples; covers the latest developments and research. Will be a useful
resource for user interface developers."—Marjorie M. K. Hlava,
president, Access Innovations, Inc.

"After 50 years of evolution the thesaurus remains a potent tool. With
experience of relevant practice-oriented research, Ali Shiri's account of
the design, use, and evaluation of thesauri for interactive and web-based
search and browsing is useful and readable." —Alan Gilchrist,
Cura Consortium.

The School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, the iSchool at the University of British Columbia, is presenting two opportunities for the public to hear from our faculty and others next week.

Is Privacy Necessary? A Talk by iSchool Faculty

Victoria Lemieux will present "Is Privacy Necessary?" at the Wall Scholars Café on Monday, October 22. This is part of a series of talks
presented by the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, and is open to the public. The talk will be given at the Peter Wall Institute on the UBC Campus. For more information, visit http://www.pwias.ubc.ca/news-events/upcoming-events/.

Panel Discussion for School Library Day

On Wednesday, October 24, the iSchool presents its next event in the 2012-13 Colloquium Series, a panel discussion as part of School Library Day in British Columbia.

"Engaging Youth with Indigenous Materials in Libraries and Classrooms" will be held on Wednesday, October 24, from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Dodson Room, in the Irving K. Barker Learning Centre at UBC. This event is open to the public, and will address challenges facing Indigenous and non-Indigenous librarians, educators and parents when drawing upon materials representing Indigenous peoples and cultures.  They will offer insights about such issues as cultural appropriation, stereotypes, addressing colonialism and what to do with dated resources. This session is ideal for teacher candidates, classroom teachers, teacher-librarians, youth librarians and parents.

Panelists are Debra Martel, Associate Director of UBC's First Nations House of Learning, Jan Hare, Associate Professor in the UBC Department of Language and Literacy Education, and Allison Taylor-McBryde, Adjunct Professor, School of Library, Archival and Information Studies. Convenor for the panel is Jo-Anne Naslund of the UBC Education Library, and moderator is Lisa P. Nathan, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the First Nations Curriculum Concentration at the UBC iSchool.

Greetings,
   Please see

https://www.coursera.org/course/insidetheinternet

a course on the history of the Internet.  Starts (TBA).  Could be 
interesting.  I lived most of this history, so it will be an interesting 
perspective.  A very interesting part is the interviews with the pioneers 
of the net and the web.

The most interesting parts of the course may well be its format in 
general, and the handling of discussion groups. While content will be 
important, the medium or process of conveying this content may be the most 
interesting.

Join me!

PS This is offered by a U Wash IS prof, Charles Severance.  Let's see what 
he can do.

    * Managing the journal's double blind peer review process with the
      assistance of the Editorial Advisory Board
    * Selecting and maintaining a pool of competent reviewers
    * Delivering appropriate content for six journal issues per volume
      to an agreed schedule
    * Upholding and developing editorial standards on the journal,

The journal Editor receives an honorarium in lieu of his/her work on the 
journal. Additional budget is also made available to the Editor to 
part-fund attendance at conferences or other events of relevance to the 
journal.

Emerald is looking for the new Editor to outline a position for the 
journal in terms of scope and coverage to further distinguish it from 
competitor journals, both Emerald and non-Emerald journals, to create a 
unique outlet in the field of LIS journals for authors and readers.

Some of the key qualities sought for the position of Editor are:

    * An established record of scholarship in the field of library,
      information science or digital technology

    * The ability to inspire an active Editorial Advisory Board
    * Energy, enthusiasm and networking skills to promote the journal
      and to encourage submissions
    * A willingness to chase reviewers when necessary and to demand the
      highest standards in review and revision
    * A willingness to develop the journal in line with the changing
      nature of the subject area, to ensure the journal continues to
      publish the best, most relevant and cutting-edge research in the field
    * Previous editorial experience, such as Editor, Guest Editor or
      Editorial Advisory Board Member on an academic journal
    * Experience of using online submission and peer review systems such
      as ScholarOne Manuscripts is desirable

*Next steps*

Interested individuals are invited to submit a CV and a proposal 
outlining how they would seek to develop the journal over the course of 
their editorship. Proposals from individuals or a team of two candidates 
will be considered.

Your application should include:

    * A covering letter describing:
          o your goals and plans for the content of /The Electronic
            Library/. This may include an assessment of the current
            strengths, weaknesses, or gaps that you plan to address;
          o a description of how you would position the journal in terms
            of scope and coverage to distinguish the journal from others
            in the field and to identify a unique outlet for prospective
            authors and readers
          o previous editorial experience;
          o attendance at library and information science conferences
            during the last five years;
          o a clear description of the structure of the editorial team

University of Missouri - College of Education

Division Executive Director



The College of Education at the University of Missouri (MU) seeks an innovative, experienced and entrepreneurial leader to serve as Division Executive Director (DED).  This DED will serve as the executive in charge of the following academic units:

*         School of Information Sciences and Learning Technologies (SISLT)

*         Department of Educational, School and Counseling Psychology (ESCP)

*         Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis (ELPA)



The Division consists of 9 graduate academic programs with 60 faculty and 29 professional staff.


Position Description: The Division Executive Director is responsible for the leadership and administration of the three units described above including oversight of academic programs, faculty evaluation, course scheduling, budget, support of faculty productivity and professional development,  facilitation of innovation, support and implementation of the college's continuous improvement efforts.  The DED will encourage and support cross-disciplinary initiatives that build on the foundations of highly successful and nationally ranked academic programs.  As an AAU member institution we place a very high value on scholarly productivity.   Each academic unit also has an Associate Division Director, who provides academic leadership within each unit under the supervision of the Division Executive Director.  The DED position is a 12-month administrative position, while serving on the Dean's Executive Council and College Leadership Team.



Minimum Qualifications: (1) A doctoral degree from an accredited university with a specialty in one of the academic areas represented within the division;  (2) A distinguished record of scholarship and teaching that merits appointment as a tenured full professor, (3) administrative experience in an academic unit, and (4)  demonstrated commitment to educational and cultural needs of diverse populations.



Desired Qualifications: (1) Experience with systematic continuous improvement, (2) success as a principal investigator or co-investigator on a federally funded project, (3) advanced training and professional development in higher education administration, (4) demonstrated success in entrepreneurial activities, and (5) successful fiscal and personnel experience.


The College of Education (COE) is ranked among the top doctoral granting colleges of education in the country.  The COE recently completed a new strategic plan and is financially well positioned to invest in opportunities for innovative ideas in support of the new plan.  Annual expenditures for externally funded projects are approximately $12 million with funded projects in research, instruction and public service.  The research portfolio has increased significantly in recent years, and is poised for continued significant strategic growth.  The College is a leader on the campus and is nationally recognized for its distance and online education programs.

MU is the oldest state university west of the Mississippi River and the largest of the four institutions in the University of Missouri System.  In 1848, MU became the first public university in the nation to open a college specific to teacher preparation.  Today, the College of Education has a student population of approximately 1,300 undergraduates and 1,600 graduate students with 88 tenured/tenure-track and 29 full-time non-tenure track faculty members. Cultural diversity is an important goal supported by the Division, College, and MU. More information is available on the web at: education.missouri.edu

MU is located in Columbia, a metropolitan community of approximately 130,000 which has been rated by Money Magazine, Men's Journal and MSN.COM as one of the best places to live in the U.S. MU has a student body of over 34,000, and is designated as a Carnegie Doctoral/Research University Extensive. MU is one of only six universities in the U.S. that is both the flagship and land grant institution housing medicine, veterinary medicine and law on the same campus.

*******************************************************************************
CFP: Third Workshop on Collaborative Information Seeking (CIS)
At the ACM CSCW 2013 Conference
February 24, 2013. San Antonio, Texas.
http://collab.infoseeking.org/events/cscw2013workshop
*******************************************************************************
Information seeking is often not a solitary activity. The notion that people working in collaboration on information tasks should be studied and supported has become more prevalent in the recent years. The field of collaborative information seeking (CIS) is re-emerging, and bringing researchers and practitioners from various disciplines. This workshop will provide an opportunity to gather a motivated set of participants in learning and sharing their insights around theoretical foundations of CIS as well as its applications. The interactive nature of the workshop will allow the participants share their research, ideas, questions, and opinions with a goal of outlining an agenda for future research on collaborative information seeking, synthesis, and sense-making. The workshop will provide a venue to bring together those who have been working on CIS issues and those who want to plan their research agenda in this emerging field.

*Workshop Format*
The workshop is organized as a highly interactive event. Participants will have an opportunity to briefly present their current research on CIS, we will have discussions and break-out sessions on the topics, and one goal will be to outline a research agenda for future CIS. This format will provide an ideal ground for seasoned researchers and practitioners as well as beginners such as graduate students. So bring your questions and curiosity!

*Position Paper Format*
Potential attendees are encouraged to submit a brief position paper. The paper should be *two to four pages long* in ACM format <http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates>.
Please email .pdf or .doc versions to Chirag Shah ([log in to unmask]) by *5:00pm PST on November 14, 2012*. Note that the organizers are currently working on organizing a special issue of a journal based on the themes of this workshop. More details are forthcoming.

*Workshop Themes*
  * Theories and models for Collaborative Information Seeking (CIS) and related areas.
  * Methodologies for studying various CIS issues, particularly, user behavior in CIS environments, collaborative information processes and task-related CIS
  * Integration of CIS models and frameworks into existing theories, models, tools or applications.
  * Application of CIS in different domains – requirements, issues, and benefits

*Discussion Points and Questions*
	1. How does collaboration fit into existing solitary information seeking activities?
	2. How do we move from single-user information seeking models to those for multi-users (collaborative)?
	3. The concepts of collaborative information handling and sharing are used in an unclear way. What is the distinction between them?
	4. How to integrate collaborative seeking into everyday life and professional environments?
	5. What are required and/or desired characteristics of a CIS system?  How do these relate to specific user needs and task scenarios?
	6. In what way could CIS tools and system be applied to different academic and professional setting?
	7. How can theories and models from CSCW inform CIS and vice versa?

*Important Dates*
	November 14, 2012: Position papers due
	December 11, 2012: Notifications
	February 24, 2013: Workshop

The Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at the University of Illinois has received a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) in the amount of $499,919 to develop a framework for curating scientific research data. The grant, "Site-Based Data Curation for Small Science" is a two-year project led by Carole Palmer, GSLIS Professor and Director of the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS)<http://cirss.lis.illinois.edu>. The co-PIs and partner institutions are Bruce Fouke, Professor in Geology, Microbiology, and the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Ann Rodman, Director of Geographic Information Systems at Yellowstone National Park; and Sayeed Choudhury, Hodson Director of the Digital Research and Curation Center and Associate Dean for Research Data Management at Johns Hopkins University.

The team brings together experts in data curation, research library repositories, geobiology, and research site management to develop policies and processes for the curation of diverse digital data collected at Yellowstone National Park (YNP). Yellowstone is a tremendously rich and scientifically significant site for data collection in geobiology, drawing scientists investigating research questions ranging from the origin of life on Earth to the search for life on other planets. The framework will result in a general curation model readily extendible to other national parks and other important research sites, especially cradles of biodiversity such as coral reefs and deep crustal biosphere locations.

"The SBDC framework will be an important step forward in professional best practices for the curation of research data," said Palmer. "It also represents the kinds of institutional collaborations needed to build functional, interdisciplinary data services and systems for earth and life sciences. Geobiology is an exemplary interdisciplinary science, and Yellowstone is a mecca for data collection in geobiology. The project is responding to the needs of scientists who can benefit from sharing and integrating data, as well as the needs of park service professionals who support the science communities that depend on the rich data resources available at YNP."

Fouke, who has conducted research at Yellowstone for many years, said, "This cross-disciplinary site-based data curation research program with Professor Palmer and her team will fundamentally influence how geobiology research is currently being conducted in Yellowstone National Park. This will positively impact not only how research questions are formulated and field data collected, but also the core principles behind data dissemination and availability."

The project will also test workflows for the transfer of curated data to the Data Conservancy for preservation and access and help support the coordination of data resources produced at the YNP. "JHU is excited about this important project because it provides a unique opportunity to further explore the potential for Data Conservancy (DC) infrastructure toward long-tail science, particularly on-site at the point of data acquisition or creation. This project also builds on lessons learned during the use of DC infrastructure for the Dry Valleys Project," said Choudhury.

The new data curation approaches will be integrated into the curriculum of the specialization in Data Curation at GSLIS<http://www.lis.illinois.edu/academics/programs/ms/data_curation> and undergraduate and graduate geobiology courses taught at Illinois, with educational outreach extended to Yellowstone. The education activities will advance data curation workforce expertise in handling complex, cross-disciplinary data and help prepare scientific communities to contribute to and take advantage of diverse collections of curated data.

The University of Hawaii

Department of Information and Computer Sciences

Library and Information Science Program



School Library Media Assistant Professor Position for August 2013



The University of Hawaii Library and Information Science Program, within
the Department of Information and Computer Sciences, seeks a visionary
faculty member for a full-time, academic year appointment, tenure-track
position to begin August 2013 at the rank of Assistant Professor in the
area of School Library Media. The LIS Program offers preparation for school
media specialist licensure in collaboration with the state Department of
Education and the Hawaii Teacher Standards Board. The successful candidate
will lead our highly ranked ALA accredited School Library Media Specialist
track.



Position Summary: This dynamic individual is expected to teach courses in
administration and instruction in K-12 school libraries that are required
for state licensure and maintain an active role in advising master's
students, supervising graduate internship experiences at K-12 school
placements, and participating in professional organizations at the state,
national, and international levels. This highly motivated individual will
exhibit the potential to become a nationally recognized researcher and
scholar in any of the following areas: school library media specialization,
digital media pedagogy, youth services in a networked world, online
learning, m-learning and educational technology. The ideal candidate will
develop a research program integrating elements of library and information
science with those of the ICS Department and related units across the
university to catalyze new knowledge. Research areas could include
indigenous knowledge, educational technology, cultural sustainability,
learning analytics, or information technology literacy and instruction.



The ICS department and the LIS Program are highly interdisciplinary and we
especially welcome applications from members of under-represented groups
working in these or other areas of library and information science with a
strong commitment to cross-disciplinary research and cultural diversity. A
primary goal of the LIS Program is to provide rich opportunities for
students to become future leaders within an expanding global information
environment. Through research, teaching and service, the ideal candidate
will support the LIS Program, the Department of Information and Computer
Sciences, the College of Natural Sciences and related units across campus,
and increase the breadth of our contribution to the University’s values: a
Hawaiian place of learning, a local to global perspective, sustainability,
technology, community and diversity.



Demonstrated teaching excellence is essential. The teaching load is two
graduate courses per semester with the option of summer teaching. Teaching
modes include face-to-face, and web-based synchronous and asynchronous
distance education. All faculty are expected to work with diverse
constituencies, teach in the core curriculum, teach using online and hybrid
modes, maintain a vigorous research agenda, meet expectations of tenure and
promotion, engage in interdisciplinary scholarship, and obtain funding.



Minimum Qualifications

Earned doctorate from an accredited university in Library and Information
Science, Education, or a related field; MLIS or equivalent from an
ALA-accredited institution; commitment to effective teaching; and poise and
good address for meeting and conferring with others.

Desirable Qualifications

College or university teaching experience; and teaching experience in K-12
schools.



The Academic Setting:

The Library and Information Science Program is part of the Department of
Information and Computer Sciences within the College of Natural Sciences,
and offers an ALA-accredited Master's program, Certificates in Advanced
Library and Information Science (CALIS), dual Master’s degree agreements
with several disciplines, and participates in a multidisciplinary PhD in
Communication and Information Sciences. The Program has over 100 master’s
students and over 2600 alumnae. Learning takes place in classrooms with
current technology and online with a variety of ICTs. The School Library
Media Specialist Track consistently ranks among the top 10 programs in
North America. Strong relationships with computer science, information and
technology services and library services provide a rich environment for
teaching and research.



Founded in 1907, the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) is a public,
research-intensive, land grant, sea grant, and space grant Institution. UHM
is committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service. With an
enrollment of over 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students, UHM provides
a vibrant, modern campus environment where students can become accomplished
individuals, learn from award winning faculty, and make a positive
difference in the community, the state, the nation, and the world.



Honolulu is ideally located on the island of Oahu, convenient to towns,
mountains, and beaches. The area offers year-round outdoor activities, a
multicultural arts community, and cultural benefits of a Carnegie I
university.



Application Process:

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2012 and continue until the
position is filled. Salary is competitive and commensurate with
qualifications and level of appointment. Please submit electronically the
following: letter of interest, complete curriculum vita, description of
research areas, and contact information for at least three references to

The grant is part of a larger $9 million award to the National Center
for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT). School of Information
Research Associate Professor Lecia Barker is a Senior Research Scientist
for NCWIT and is co-principal investigator of the grant.

“Women made up less than 25% of the computing-related workforce in 2009
and they leave it at twice the rate of their male peers – a higher rate
than in other science and engineering fields,” said Barker.

“Underutilizing the human capital of women and under-represented
minorities in this critical workforce is damaging both to the nation and
to those left out, as their chances of entering one of these
fastest-growing and highest-paying careers are small.” Although some
progress has been made as of 2011, the current postsecondary graduation
rates in computing disciplines will fill less than a third of the
projected 1.4 million technology and computing jobs projected for 2018.

“The vision of a truly inclusive information society cannot be realized
until we ensure the full participation of all citizens,” said Andrew
Dillon, dean of the School of Information. “Lecia’s work is at the
forefront of efforts to provide working solutions to known problems in
attracting women into the information and computing disciplines and
keeping them there. It is an example of our School’s ongoing commitment
to shape a better information world for all."

Barker’s focus is on maintaining a strong knowledge base of leading-edge
research and practices for recruiting, retaining, and raising awareness
about girls and women in technology. She will synthesize existing
research studies, collect and analyze data, and build a community of
researchers to conduct original studies.

The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) is a
non-profit change leader network of more than 300 prominent
corporations, academic institutions, government agencies, and
non-profits working to increase women's participation in IT and computing.

In addition to this grant, Barker has also been awarded $187,000 to help
engineering and computing fields with the lowest graduation rates of
women at the bachelor’s level to attract a larger pool of women and
retain them through graduation. This is part of a larger $2.5 million
award to the University of Colorado, University of Virginia, and
University of Washington.

New San Jose Gateway PhD Program Alumna Pursue Careers in Academia

 

Cheryl Stenstrõm and Mary Ann Harlan are among the first individuals to
complete the  <http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/gateway-phd> San Jose
Gateway PhD Program, an innovative doctoral program that spans two
continents in a partnership between the San Jose State University School of
Library and Information Science (SJSU SLIS) and Queensland University of
Technology (QUT), one of Australia's top research institutions. 

 

Both new alumna of the San Jose Gateway PhD Program are pursuing careers as
library and information science (LIS) educators and already hold full-time
lecturer positions at SJSU SLIS.

 

Stenstrõm
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/people/community-profile/cheryl-strenstrom> 's
research as a doctoral student focused on library funding decisions by
public officials, a natural extension of her interest in solving library
leadership challenges. She shared her latest research on library leadership
during a presentation at the recent Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual
Conference. View the
<https://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/jwsdetect/nativeplayback.jnlp?sid=
2008350&psid=2012-10-04.1014.D.32691D41D7B6515C391DA51803E7E3.vcr> recording
(Blackboard Collaborate).

 

Stenstrõm's passion for exploring library leadership challenges grows out of
her experience serving in leadership positions in several public libraries,
most recently as the chief librarian and CEO of the South Shore Public
Libraries in Nova Scotia, Canada. Stenstrõm currently teaches courses for
students enrolled in the fully online
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/master-library-and-information-science-mli
s> Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program at SJSU SLIS,
including courses on reference services, program evaluation, and advocacy.

 

 
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/gateway-phd/gateway-phd-doctoral-student-p
rofiles-0/mary-ann-harlan> Harlan has a more than a decade of experience
serving as a teacher librarian, sparking her research interest in the
information seeking practices of teens. Her doctoral research examined how
teens create and share online content, including films, visual artwork,
music, and websites.  

 

"After four years, I was really pleased to share my research findings and
complete the doctoral program," said Harlan. "Now I'm looking forward to the
opportunity to use the knowledge I have gained in my teaching and in the
field."

 

Harlan teaches MLIS courses at SJSU SLIS on topics including library
resources for tweens, school library media centers, and instructional
strategies. She is also an alumna of the MLIS program at SJSU SLIS.

 

Stenstrõm and Harlan join
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/people/community-profile/diana-wakimoto> Diana
Wakimoto as the first three doctoral students to complete the San Jose
Gateway PhD Program, which admitted its first students in 2008. The doctoral
program uses a distance education model to serve students who work part time
or full time while earning their degrees. They receive guidance and
one-on-one mentoring from SJSU SLIS and QUT faculty.

Hi,

I'm a PhD student at Nanyang Technological University doing research in automatic summarization, supervised by Drs. Chris Khoo and Na Jin Cheon.

I'm looking for assessors to evaluate three types of summaries of research papers -- as part of my PhD project. The assessors should be PhD candidates, researchers or faculty in LIS or Computer Science. (PhD candidates should have passed their qualifying exams or proposal defense.)

*The task*
The task is to evaluate the quality of three summaries of research papers on a particular topic from JASIST, J. Doc. & JIS. Each task will take about 30 min.; each assessor will be requested to do 3 tasks (1.5 to 2 hours altogether).

*Payment*
I can offer a token payment of US$20 for the 3 tasks, to be paid to the assessor's Paypal account after receipt of the evaluations.

*The topics*
The summaries are on the following topics. You can indicate 3 topics as your preference - though I can't promise to assign you the topics of your choice.
- Attribution theory
- Citation analysis
- Collaborative filtering
- Creativity
- Digital library users
- Indexing
- Information architecture
- Information kiosks
- Information needs
- Information retrieval
- Interfaces
- Internet
- Journal usage
- Knowledge sharing
- Language translation
- Recommender systems
- Relevance
- Searchers, Searcher behaviour
- Taxonomy
- User behaviour
- Web searching
If you are able to help me with the evaluation, please drop an email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> with some background information about yourself. The research results will be anonymized in any publication, and the identity of the assessors and their background information will be kept strictly confidential and will be available only to me and my supervisors.

Thanks!
Kokil Jaidka

Public Services Quarterly's column, ÿÿFuture Voices in Public Services,ÿÿ 
is a forum for students in graduate library and information science 
programs to discuss key issues they see in academic library public 
services, to envision what they feel librarians in public service have to 
offer to academia, to tell us of their visions for the profession, or to 
tell us of research that is going on in library schools. We hope to 
provide fresh perspectives from those entering our field, in both the 
United States and other countries. Interested faculty of graduate library 
and information science programs, who would like their studentsÿÿ ideas 
represented in this column, are invited to contact Nancy H. Dewald, 
ÿÿFuture Voicesÿÿ column editor, at [log in to unmask] Please note that 
students must be interested in ACADEMIC librarianship.

If you would like to see sample essays, please contact me. We have had 
column contributors representing LIS programs in Australia, Scotland, 
British Columbia, Ontario, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Alabama, Washington state, and 
Hawaii. I hope to be hearing from some of you soon! Thanks.

This is a call for the Jean Tague-Sutcliffe Visiting Lecturer for 2013. This position honors the memory of Jean Tague-Sutcliffe, a long-serving Dean of the former Graduate School of Library and Information Science (now part of the Faculty of Information and Media Studies), acknowledging her far-reaching contributions to LIS scholarship and the mentoring of the many doctoral students who studied under her guidance. The full terms of reference for the position are attached.
 
Visiting Lecturers may be from anywhere in the world and will have recognized expertise in any area of research within the purview of Library and Information Science. 

Responsibilities consist of offering at least one lecture in the academic year for which the position is offered. Lectureships may be configured in a variety of different ways to suit the successful candidate, for example, a short-term stay with a single lecture or a longer-term stay with the possibility of teaching a course as a Limited Duties faculty member, dependent on applicant preferences, FIMS teaching needs and Program Committee approval, and subject to the provisions of the faculty Collective Agreement. 

Support provided through the Faculty of Information and Media Studies will be used to cover all expenses associated with each lecture including, but not limited to, organization, speakers and presentation costs, venues, promotion and hospitality. (Maximum of $2500.00). For those wishing to visit between May and August it may also be possible to subsidize the cost of accommodation in a university residence.
 
Candidates will submit a proposal and all proposals will be reviewed jointly by the MLIS and LIS Doctoral program committees. All proposals should be submitted by December 1st. Proposals should be submitted to Dr. Grant Campbell, LIS Program Coordinator ([log in to unmask]), and Dr. Nick Dyer-Witheford, Associate Dean of FIMS ([log in to unmask]).
 
Best regards,

Pam McKenzie

ASIS&T Student Chapter's Impressive First Year Reaps Big Rewards   

 

It's been a whirlwind year for the American Society for Information Science
and Technology (ASIS&T) Student Chapter at the San Jose State University
School of Library and Information Science (SJSU SLIS). The student group has
journeyed from establishing the chapter's charter just a year ago to
receiving recognition as the professional association's 2012 Student Chapter
of the Year.  

 

"I was thrilled to learn that our student chapter won this national award,
especially during its first year of existence" said Sarah Emmerson
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/people/community-profile/sarah-emmerson> , who was
the chair of the newly established student chapter. "We hit the ground
running in August 2011 to make a success of the student chapter from its
beginning."  

 

Emmerson worked with a team of fellow graduate students at SJSU SLIS to
reactivate the student chapter during spring 2011, and then launch the newly
chartered chapter in August 2011. In its inaugural year, the chapter created
an impressive array of resources and virtual networking opportunities for
SJSU SLIS students.  

 

Since the graduate programs
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/prospective-students/choose-your-program>  at SJSU
SLIS are fully online, and SLIS students live across the continent, the
ASIS&T Student Chapter held all its events online. They also created a range
of tools to support ongoing interaction for its members, including a
dedicated instant messaging channel, as well as a news feed and discussion
forum that are integrated into the School's online learning management
system.

 

During the 2011-2012 academic year, the ASIS&T Student Chapter hosted 14
online events; published four newsletters; created a website
<http://slisgroups.sjsu.edu/asistsc/> ; established social media presence on
Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube; and held 11 business meetings. The
student chapter's membership grew to 68 students by the end of its first
year, with more than 160 students following chapter news via its email
discussion list and more than 360 "likes" on its Facebook page.   

 

Webinars <http://slisgroups.sjsu.edu/asistsc/?page_idD9>  hosted by the
student chapter cover topics ranging from digital asset management, to
emerging technology trends, to careers in information architecture.
Recordings are freely available on the student chapter website:
http://slisgroups.sjsu.edu/asistsc

 

"I'm so proud of the 2011-2012 board members
<http://slisgroups.sjsu.edu/asistsc/?page_id4>  who worked hard to make
our student chapter a success," said Emmerson. "We met each new challenge
head on and were fearless in our determination to create a dynamic and
vibrant first year for the SJSU ASIS&T Student Chapter. I believe the
invaluable contributions, support, and dedication of every board member
helped us earn this award. They truly deserve this recognition."

 

The award will be presented at this year's ASIS&T annual conference, which
takes place on October 26-30, 2012, in Baltimore, Maryland.

In addition to ASIS&T, SJSU SLIS offers student chapters
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/people/student-groups>  of the American Library
Association and the Society of American Archivists. Current SLIS students
can also join the combined student and alumni group, SLISConnect. 

 

The San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science
offers two fully online master's degrees, a fully online certificate
program, and a doctoral program: Master of Library and Information Science
(MLIS), Master of Archives and Records Administration (MARA), Post-Master's
Certificate in Library and Information Science, and the San Jose Gateway PhD
Program. Let the learning begin: http://slisweb.sjsu.edu

Dear JESSE members,

My name is Seungwon Yang, a PhD student in the Dept. of Computer Science, 
Virginia Tech.   I would like to recruit about 5 study participants, who would 
like to help with labeling keywords (or topics) for 30 textual documents 
(mainly extracted text of news articles about a disaster). All the 
communications/conducting study are done online.

The results from five completed tasks are used to compute inter-indexer 
consistency values among humans, and also to evaluate an automatic topic 
labeling algorithm's performance against human indexers.

Upon completion of the tasks, $30 Amazon gift card is provided as compensation. 
For more information such as example documents, please see:

                              WorldCIST'13
The 2013 World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies
                    March 27 - 30, Algarve, Portugal
                    http://www.aisti.eu/worldcist13/
**********************************************************************************

SCOPE

The 2013 World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies (WorldCIST'13: http://www.aisti.eu/worldcist13/) is a global forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the several perspectives of Information Systems and Technologies.

We are pleased to invite you to submit your papers to WorldCISTI'13. All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, importance and clarity.


THEMES

Submitted papers should be related with one or more of the main themes proposed for the Conference:

A) Information and Knowledge Management (IKM);

B) Organizational Models and Information Systems (OMIS);

C) Intelligent and Decision Support Systems (IDSS);

D) Software Systems, Architectures, Applications and Tools (SSAAT);

E) Computer Networks, Mobility and Pervasive Systems (CNMPS);

F) Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).


TYPES OF SUBMISSIONS AND DECISIONS

Four types of papers can be submitted:

Full paper: Finished or consolidated R&D works, to be included in one of the Conference themes. These papers are assigned a 10-page limit.

Short paper: Ongoing works with relevant preliminary results, open to discussion. These papers are assigned a 7-page limit.

Poster paper: Initial work with relevant ideas, open to discussion. These papers are assigned to a 4-page limit.

Company paper: Companies' papers that show practical experience, R & D, tools, etc., focused on some topics of the conference. These papers are assigned to a 4-page limit.

Submitted papers must comply with the format of Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Series (see http://www.aisti.eu/worldcist13/springerformat.doc) be written in English, must not have been published before, not be under review for any other conference or publication and not include any information leading to the authors’ identification. Therefore, the authors’ names, affiliations and bibliographic references should not be included in the version for evaluation by the Program Committee. This information should only be included in the camera-ready version.

All papers will be subjected to a “double-blind review” by at least two members of the Program Committee.

Based on Program Committee evaluation, a paper can be rejected or accepted by the Conference Chairs. In the later case, it can be accepted as the type originally submitted or as another type. Thus, full papers can be accepted as short papers or poster papers only. Similarly, short papers can be accepted as poster papers only. In these cases, the authors will be allowed to maintain the original number of pages in the camera-ready version.

The authors of accepted poster papers must also build and print a poster to be exhibited during the Conference. This poster must follow an A1 or A2 vertical format. The Conference includes Work Sessions where these posters are presented and orally discussed, with a 5 minute limit per poster.

The authors of accepted full papers will have 15 minutes to present their work in a Conference Work Session; approximately 5 minutes of discussion will follow each presentation. The authors of accepted short papers and company papers will have 11 minutes to present their work in a Conference Work Session; approximately 4 minutes of discussion will follow each presentation.

PUBLICATION AND INDEXING

To ensure that a full paper, short paper, poster paper or company paper is published in the Proceedings, at least one of the authors must be fully registered by the 11th of January 2013, and the paper must comply with the suggested layout and page-limit. Additionally, all recommended changes must be addressed by the authors before they submit the camera-ready version.

No more than one paper per registration will be published in the Conference Proceedings. An extra fee must be paid for publication of additional papers, with a maximum of two additional papers per registration.

Full and short papers will be published in Proceedings by Springer, in Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Series. Poster and company papers will be published in Proceedings by AISTI.

Published full and short papers will be indexed by ISI, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS, DBLP and EBSCO, among others, and will be available in the SpringerLink Digital Library. Published poster and company papers will be indexed in EI-Compendex and EBSCO.

The authors of the best selected papers will be invited to extend them for publication in edited books and in international journals indexed by ISI/JCR, SCOPUS and/or DBLP, among others, such as:

- ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation (TOMACS)
- Online Information Review (OIR)

From: NANCY HODGE DEWALD <[log in to unmask]>

Public Services Quarterly's column, ÿÿFuture Voices in Public Services,ÿÿ 
is a forum for students in graduate library and information science 
programs to discuss key issues they see in academic library public 
services, to envision what they feel librarians in public service have to 
offer to academia, to tell us of their visions for the profession, or to 
tell us of research that is going on in library schools. We hope to 
provide fresh perspectives from those entering our field, in both the 
United States and other countries. Interested faculty of graduate library 
and information science programs, who would like their studentsÿÿ ideas 
represented in this column, are invited to contact Nancy H. Dewald, 
ÿÿFuture Voicesÿÿ column editor, at [log in to unmask] Please note that 
students must be interested in ACADEMIC librarianship.

If you would like to see sample essays, please contact me. We have had 
column contributors representing LIS programs in Australia, Scotland, 
British Columbia, Ontario, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Alabama, Washington state, and 
Hawaii. I hope to be hearing from some of you soon! Thanks.

Public Services Quarterly's column, ÿÿFuture Voices in Public Services,ÿÿ 
is a forum for students in graduate library and information science 
programs to discuss key issues they see in academic library public 
services, to envision what they feel librarians in public service have to 
offer to academia, to tell us of their visions for the profession, or to 
tell us of research that is going on in library schools. We hope to 
provide fresh perspectives from those entering our field, in both the 
United States and other countries. Interested faculty of graduate library 
and information science programs, who would like their studentsÿÿ ideas 
represented in this column, are invited to contact Nancy H. Dewald, 
ÿÿFuture Voicesÿÿ column editor, at [log in to unmask] Please note that 
students must be interested in ACADEMIC librarianship.

If you would like to see sample essays, please contact me. We have had 
column contributors representing LIS programs in Australia, Scotland, 
British Columbia, Ontario, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Alabama, Washington state, and 
Hawaii. I hope to be hearing from some of you soon! Thanks.

Library and Information Science - The University of Western Ontario - Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) Appointment

Deadline for receipt of applications—February 1, 2013 or until position is filled.

The Library and Information Science program in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies (FIMS) at The University of Western Ontario invites applications for a probationary appointment (tenure-track) at the rank of Assistant Professor. We are particularly interested in candidates with a research record and interests in the areas of workplace labour and management issues, as they pertain to librarianship, and the ability to teach our required MLIS offering in “Managing and Working in Information Organizations.” An ability to offer courses that might be cross-listed with our other graduate programs in the Faculty or to contribute to the curriculum of our undergraduate program would also be an asset. The normal teaching workload in FIMS is four half-courses per academic year.

Library and Information Science education at FIMS is offered in research-intensive graduate programs, including a new joint program in Health Information Science, that currently house approximately 220 MLIS students and more than 25 PhD candidates. Founded upon interdisciplinarity, creative inquiry, critical thinking, and the interleaving of theory and practice in professional and scholarly contexts, the graduate programs in LIS are committed to the expansion, adaptation, and application of the knowledge base of librarianship to the problems and challenges posed by current information environments. Information about the Faculty and descriptions of its courses are available at http://www.fims.uwo.ca. The Faculty of Information and Media Studies is one of eleven academic Faculties in The University of Western Ontario, one of Canada’s foremost research intensive Universities.

Applicants should have a PhD completed or nearing completion in LIS or a related discipline, and appointments will commence on July 1, 2013
Interested candidates are invited to send their curriculum vitae, sample publications, three letters of reference, and a cover letter outlining their interest in the position by February 1, 2013 to:

Dr. Thomas Carmichael, Dean 
Faculty of Information and Media Studies 
North Campus Building 
The University of Western Ontario 
London, ON, Canada N6A 5B7 
Phone: (519) 661-4235 Fax: (519) 661-3506

or electronically to [log in to unmask]

Positions are subject to budget approval. Applicants should have fluent written and oral communication skills in English. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. The University of Western Ontario is committed to employment
equity and welcomes applications from all qualified women and men, including visible minorities, aboriginal people and persons with disabilities.

Associate/Full Professor, School of Information and Library Science
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

We are seeking an exceptional candidate to join the School of Information and Library Science (SILS), as an Associate Professor (Tenure-Track) or Full Professor, with the expectation of directly engaging in and supporting the Carolina Health Informatics Program (CHIP). The candidate will have substantial research and teaching experiences and demonstrated competencies in one or more of the foundational areas of SILS and CHIP. The foundational areas include human-computer interaction, systems analysis, data management and preservation, and data analytics. Candidates with demonstrated experiences in health informatics with a strong linkage to one or more of these foundational areas will be given preference.
SILS has a reputation as a nexus of researchers with a strong record of interdisciplinary collaborations. Thus, there are many initiatives on campus and with nearby universities that involve collaborations among SILS faculty members and colleagues from medicine, public health, nursing, and IT. Currently, SILS offers a wide array of educational programs that include a Bachelor of Science in Information Science, Master of Science in Information Science, Master of Science in Library Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. The CHIP program offers three graduate certificates in informatics with concentrations in clinical, public health, and nursing areas. There is a new professionally-oriented Master's in Biomedical and Health Informatics degree under development, with a prospective launch date of fall 2013.
We are particularly interested in candidates with a published record of research, engagement in an active research program, and a long-term plan involving novel approaches for facilitating access to structured and unstructured health data, health data management (e.g., data warehouses), methodologies and procedures for health system usability and effectiveness, and development and improvement of clinical decision support systems. The candidate is expected to regularly teach in one or more of the foundational areas of the school and supervise graduate student research and dissertation projects. Previous experience in educational administration or program development requiring collaborations among colleagues from multiple disciplines will be considered a strong asset.
Candidates must have a doctoral degree or an equivalent level of certification and must provide evidence of research and teaching excellence, or potential for excellence, in their area of expertise. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications. The selection and review process will begin on December 1st, 2012 and will continue until the position is filled.
Applicants may view the job posting and submit a CV, cover letter, and a list of four references at: http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/9594. For inquiry and assistance with the application submission process, please contact Susan Sylvester ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>), 919-962-8071 (fax) or you may mail questions to: Search Committee Chairperson, School of Information and Library Science, CB #3360, 100 Manning Hall, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3360.

ALISE CV and Portfolio Review -- call for faculty volunteers

Colleagues,

I am organizing the review of CVs / Portfolios to take place at ALISE (in 
Seattle). I am looking for faculty who are willing to spend 30 minutes at 
ALISE with individuals to give feedback on their CVs. I imagine giving 
feedback on how well the CV presents the applicant for a job, how you 
would view their CV if they were applying at your school, and general 
advice about how their current achievements situate them in terms of 
getting a first job, getting tenure, etc. I would expect that discussions 
would also touch on job hunting, interviewing, and career advice.

I will try to get CVs sent to you ahead of time, and to assign individuals 
to you who seem a good fit. However, I hear there are likely to be 
drop-ins as well, so be prepared to receive last minute requests.

The session is planned for Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 from 1-4pm.

Please let me know you are interested by sending me an email.

Thanks.

/Caroline

You may use tools like Google Maps in your personal life all the time for locating restaurants and local businesses, driving directions or planning trips via public transportation, but have you considered how this same technology could be used at your library to improve library services?

RUSA's online course “Introduction to Spatial Literacy and Online Mapping" is the perfect opportunity for librarians and library staff from public and academic libraries to gain a basic understanding of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology and learn about specific technologies they may be exposed to at the library. Registration for this course, which runs Nov. 5-25, ends on Thursday, Nov. 1. 

REGISTER ONLINE NOW: http://www.ala.org/Template.cfm?Section=oloc&Template=/Conference/ConferenceList.cfm&ConferenceTypeCode=L

**Know someone who should enroll in this course? Please forward this message!**

If you've already taken this introductory course or have a good working knowledge of GIS and want to go further, consider enrolling in "Spatial Literacy II: Incorporation of Maps and GIS", which shows you how to harness these technologies for reference work, library projects, library administration, collection delivery, instruction, outreach and library promotion. The next session of this course begins Dec. 3.

Wouldn't it be awesome if several of your staff could take this course and your library could reap the benefits in improved library services? Group discounts are available! Rates for two or more registrants from the same library, library network or library system start at $110 per person.

Archives, the Newberry library, the Library of Congress, and the Ward Irish Music Archives for Alternative Spring Break and Fieldwork. Alumni have obtained permanent positions with such institutions as the William J. Clinton Presidential Library, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and the Huntington Library. 




SOIS hosts three internal research groups: the Research Group for Information Retrieval, Information Organization Research Group, and the Social Studies of Information Research Group. 

The SOIS research and instructional programs are designed to be a resourceful blend of the University’s mission with the School’s information focus, international scope, and interdisciplinary mindset.

Dear Colleagues

please consider submitting a paper at www.isi2013.de:
long or short paper,
student paper.
doctoral presentation,
poster,
panel,
...

*13th International Symposium of Information Science (ISI) in Potsdam**
*Submission deadline for papers: 11th of November 2012

In 2013 the biennial central conference of the _German Higher Education
Association for Information Science_ (HI) is to be held by the
Information Sciences Department of University of Applied Sciences
Potsdam (FH) in collaboration with the _American Society of Information
Science and Technology_ (ASIS&T).

Taking place under the slogan: "Information Sciences between Virtual
Infrastructure and Material Lifeworlds", the symposium will run from the
19th to the 22nd of March 2013 and seek to explore the bridging between
traditional computer science topics and new approaches from interface
design, activity theory and cognitive science.

Keynote presentations from the likes of /Diane Sonnenwald,/ President of
the symposium's US-American association partner, /Alfio M. Gliozzo/ from
the IBM Watson Research Center and well-known technological futurologist
/Alan N. Shapiro/ will introduce the key topics.

The conference programme will comprise more than 10 topics blocks for
which long and short papers, panel discussion, posters and
student/doctoral thesis presentations can be submitted up until the 29th
of October 2012 via the symposium website at www.isi2013.de.

The latest research findings from the various fields of the information
sciences in Germany and internationally will feature and highlight the
progression the information sciences have undergone over the last two
years, while an anonymous approval process conducted by proven national
and international specialists guarantees a symposium of outstanding
quality. English-language papers are welcome, and the conference
languages are German and English.

The highlight of the symposium has often been the awarding of the
Gerhard Lustig Prize, named after one of the founders of information
science in Germany, for the best student thesis on information science
from 2011-- 2012. The selected papers will receive their accolades at a
special evening event.

To coincide with ISI2013, various information science events will take
place at FH Potsdam immediately prior to and following the symposium:
the annual conference of the German chapter of the International Society
for Knowledge Organisation (ISKO), FH Potsdam's yearly I-Science Day
organised in collaboration with the German Initiative for Network
Information (DINI e.V.) and "frei<tag>", the BarCamp from library
sciences e-journal LIBREAS.

Further information on the conference can be found at www.isi2013.de.

Monday, November 5, 2012  - 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm CST - RESEARCH PRESENTATION in Gorgas Library room 503
Understanding Information Behaviour in Palliative Care: Arguing for Exploring Diverse and Multiple Overlapping Contexts
Because of rapid internet and media communication of research findings, consumers are confronted on a regular basis with new and/or changing medical evidence. This presents a challenge not only to health professionals seeking to deliver evidence-based clinical care, but also to individuals engaged in personal health management. Set in a context where evidence is explicitly evolving, this presentation explores self-positioning within consumer accounts of health information seeking. It also examines how individuals experience, interact with and integrate uncertain health information mediated by the many formal and informal sources which consumers encounter or seek as they make health decisions. Findings have implications for shared patient-clinician decision making and health literacy.
