Faculty Article Named to Top 20 List

An article co-authored by UBC iSchool faculty member Dr. Luanne Freund has been included in LIRT’s Top Twenty library instruction articles of 2011. The article, “Student Perceptions of the Information Professions and their Master’s Program in Information Studies,” is co-authored with Professors Joan Cherry and Wendy Duff of the University of Toronto, and librarian Nalini Singh. It was originally published in 2011, in Library & Information Science Research. The authors examine student attitudes toward their professions and career futures, as well as their programs of study. The top 20 selections are made by the American Library Association’s Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT), which considered more than 200 articles published in 2011. The judges commended the authors for providing “great insight into how students view the library profession and their education.” The article is summarized and evaluated on pages 10-11 of the June 2012 issue of LIRT News, available at http://fleetwood.baylor.edu/lirt/lirtnews/2012/jun12.pdf.
