Professor and CCI Associate Dean for Research Suzie Allard made an invited presentation at the annual International Federation of Libraries Association and Institutions (IFLA) conference in Columbus, Ohio on August 17, 2016. The presentation, “Educating, coaching, mentoring, partnering: The role of research data services in the research enterprise,” was made as part of the Hot Topics session, “Re-envisioning or re-inventing – new journeys for academic and research librarians or Emperor’s New Clothes?”  The session included an interactive dialog with the audience during which the four presenters rotated through small discussion groups.

Allard was the keynote speaker for the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) Virtual Conference: Data Curation – Cultivating Past Research Data for Future Consumption on August 31, 2016. Her talk, “Research data and services in academic libraries: US and Europe,” used the results of studies supported by funding from NSF (DataONE) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).  NISO is the not for profit that represents the US at the international standards organization. It focuses on standards related to information creation, transfer and use particularly for research and learning.

Professor Dania Bilal will be an invited speaker on a refereed panel presenting, “Top ranked results and what they mean? Misconception of missed information literacy education.” The panel, “Information literacy: Bridging the gap between theory and practice,” is a part of the 2016 ASIS&T Annual Meeting, October 14 -18, 2016 in Copenhagen. Bilal will also present a refereed poster-short paper co-authored with J. Gwizdka (U.of Texas), “Children’s eye fixations on Google search results,” at the conference.

Professor Peiling Wang, S. You (U. of Wisconsin), Manasa Rath (Rutgers U.), and Dietmar Wolfram (U. of Wisconsin) had their paper, “Open peer review in scientific publishing: A web mining study of peer authors and reviewers,” accepted for publication in the Journal of Data and Information Science 1:4, December 2016.



Professor Julie Andsager’s article, “Social representation of cyberbullying and adolescent suicide: A mixed-methods analysis,” with co-authors R. Young, S. Miles (both from U. of Iowa), R. Subramanian, and A. Hinnant (both U. of Missouri), has been published online in Health Communication.
