ALISE Dissertation Award

Jan 9, 2017

I am honoured to be the 2017 winner of the Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) Eugene Garfield Doctoral Dissertation Award.

My doctoral dissertation, Health-Related Information Practices and the Experiences of Young Parents, completed in the Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program at the University of British Columbia, investigated the health information practices of young parents in Greater Vancouver, the ethics and effectiveness of the ways health promotion efforts tried to use information to influence young parents, and the social information worlds in which these practices took place.

I will present a summary of this work at the upcoming ALISE meeting in Atlanta, during the Awards & Papers session on Thursday, January 19 (8:30am – 10:00am).
