Faculty, Students Alumni Featured in the News

Several members of our UBC iSchool community have been making the news lately. Faculty member Victoria Lemieux is featured for her work in visual analytics in the current issue of Innovations, the newsletter of the UBC Institute for Computing, Information and Cognitive Sciences. The article is titled “Tools for Thought: Using Visual Analytics to Gain Insight into the Deluge of Data,” by Mari-Lou Rowley.

An paper written for LIBR 504 Management has been published as a peer-reviewed article in the Fall 2012 issue of PNLA Quarterly. Sarah Fallik, Devin Soper and Kaitlyn Sparks wrote “Green Libraries on the Cheap,” examining inexpensive but effective measures resulting in greener libraries. Sarah completed her MLIS requirements over the summer and will be conferred her degree in November, while Devin and Kaitlyn are in their final year of study in the MLIS program. PNLA Quarterly is the official publication of the Pacific Northwest Library Association.

Finally, Kevin Read, who completed his Dual MAS/MLIS program this summer and will be conferred his degrees at Convocation later this month, is featured as one of the four 2012-13 Associate Fellows who have joined the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, MD.  The highly competitive program prepares information professionals for future leadership roles in health sciences libraries and in health services research.
