Call for Nominations: Information Literacy Research Awards

The Institute for Information Literacy at Purdue (IILP) invites nominations for its 2022 information literacy research awards. These awards celebrate and highlight the positive difference information literacy researchers make in addressing the significant, unwieldy information challenges our society faces today, ranging from misinformation campaigns designed to confuse and disempower, to a lack of access to credible information that can have life-altering, disproportionate effects on different communities. IILP recognizes excellence in this crucial research with annual awards for: 1) graduate student research and 2) best publication for research examining complex information challenges with the aim of further developing or creating new information literacy models. Each winner will receive a $1000 stipend to extend their research and be featured as an invited speaker at IILP’s ID:EALS symposium (April 12-13, 2023). Graduate Student Information Literacy Research Award: Graduate student researchers (currently enrolled) engaged in research or scholarship examining the role of information literacy in navigating information challenges are eligible for nomination. Best Publication Award for Information Literacy Research: Researchers who published (or will publish) research during 2022 proposing ways information literacy can help us navigate current information challenges are eligible for nomination.

For more information on the nomination and selection process, please see the graduate research award call out or the best publication award callout. Visit the IILP website for more information about the Institute’s mission and initiatives.

Deadline: 12/31/2022

Looking for: community college librarians who do research with human subjects

You should be: very organized, curious and interested in the topic

The Scholarly Research Committee of CJCLS is putting together a panel of community college librarians willing to share their experiences either navigating the IRB process at their community college or navigating when there is no IRB process established at their institution. The committee is tentatively looking to schedule this virtual event during the first weeks of December. If you’re at all interested, please email Linda Miles (Head of Reference and Assistant Professor, Hostos Community College – CUNY) at lmiles.librarian@gmail.com. Please share this inquiry with colleagues.

Nimisha is a subject librarian at University of Cincinnati, where she supports all research, reference, collection development, and digital scholarship for history, gender studies, and anthropology. In her spare time you can find her riding her bike, knitting, or reading. @mishiebhat on Twitter.
