This past spring, our Library faculty, and academic professionals traveled across the country to present on a wide variety of topics. As always, we congratulate our researchers on their important contributions to the U of I and to Library and Information Science and other disciplines. A selected bibliography of these presentations is provided below.
The Illinois Library Association (ILA) announces JJ Pionke, Applied Health Sciences Librarian & Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UICU), as the 2019 Crosman Memorial Award Winner. The Crosman Award is named in memory of Alex Crosman, director of the Peoria Public Library at the time of his death in 1986. The award recognizes the achievements of library workers who are new or relatively new to the field and encourages continued involvement in the profession. Other awards honor those who have accomplished a great deal over a long period of time; this award honors someone who has accomplished a great deal in a short time.
Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Professor and Coordinator for Information Literacy Services and Instruction in the University Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in collaboration with Kyle Jones, Assistant Professor in the School of Informatics and Computing at the Indiana University-Indianapolis (IUPUI), has been awarded a Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for Prioritizing Privacy: Training to Improve Practice in Library Analytics Projects.
This three-year grant for $249,198 will support the development of a continuing education program to train academic library practitioners to comprehensively address privacy and related ethical considerations in learning analytics projects. The training will be developed by Hinchliffe and Jones working with a team of content experts and guided by the input of an expert advisory board.
