INFORMATION SCIENCES

Assistant Professor Vandana Singh had her article, “Expectations versus experiences: Librarians using Open Source Integrated Library Systems,” accepted for publication in The Electronic Library 32(4).

Assistant Professor Carolyn Hank has been invited to present report findings from two recently awarded grant projects at the Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) Conference on Jan. 23 and 25 in Seattle. The first study, “Teaching in the Age of Facebook and other Social Media: LIS Faculty and Students ‘Friending’ and ‘Poking’ in the Social Sphere,” received funding from the 2012 ALISE Research Grant. It looks at how faculty and students interact informally in social media spaces, with a particular focus on Facebook, and the resulting implications for personal digital stewardship practices and institutional social media policies. The second, “The Biblioblogosphere: A Comparison of Communication and Preservation Perceptions and Practices between Blogging LIS Scholar-Practitioners and LIS Scholar-Researchers,” was awarded a 2012 OCLC/ALISE Library and Information Science Research Grant.  

JOURNALISM AND ELECTRONIC MEDIA

Associate Dean and Professor Catherine Luther served as a member of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars’ Communication Peer Review Committee for the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program. 

Assistant Professors Elizabeth Hendrickson (JEM) and Vandana Singh (IS), along with IS graduate student Caroline Redmond, had their paper, “iPerceive: Platform Priorities And Workplace Innovation In America’s Consumer Magazine Industry,” accepted to the 14th International Symposium on Online Journalism that will be held at the University of Texas at Austin Apr. 19-20. The paper will also be published in the next issue of The Official Research Journal of the International Symposium on Online Journalism

Hendrickson will also serve as a judge for the National Magazine Awards on Feb. 7 in New York. The annual competition honors print and digital publications that consistently demonstrate superior execution of editorial objectives, innovative techniques, noteworthy journalistic enterprise and imaginative art direction. Established in 1966, the awards are sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and are administered by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME).
