Stanislava Gardasevic Presents Research Forum on Community Design of a Knowledge Graph

The LIS Research Forum continues with a presentation by Stanislava Gardasevic, a Communication & Information Sciences PhD candidate and a LIS Teaching Assistant and Course Instructor titled “Community Design of a Knowledge Graph to Support Interdisciplinary PhD Students”. How do PhD students discover the resources and relationships conducive to satisfaction and success in their degree programs? This study proposes a community-grounded, extensible knowledge graph to make explicit and tacit information intuitively discoverable, by capturing and visualizing relationships between people based on their activities and relations to information resources in a particular domain (i.e. Communication and Information Sciences Interdisciplinary PhD Program). The presentation will include an overview of methods used to collect data and create/populate the knowledge graph, a demonstration of the graph query visualizations, and some of the preliminary findings that show the usefulness of such technology for PhD students. The presentation will be held on Thursday, April 20th, from 4:00-4:45 pm in the LIS Program Area, Hamilton Basement, Room 003F, and also on Zoom. The Zoom link and more information about the event can be found on the event flyer.
