Dr. Noriko Asato was invited to join the editorial board of International Information & Library Review. A peer reviewed quarterly journal published by the Taylor & Francis Group, the journal has served information scientists and librarians all over the world for more than twenty years.
Routledge/Taylor and Francis’ library and information science journals use the “Green OA” option, meaning that there is never an author publishing charge. Authors achieve full open access and have an ability to disseminate pre-prints at institutional repositories and post-print immediately following publication, with no embargo.
On Friday, September 11, 2015, Govenor David Ige and Lieutenant Governor Shan Tsutsui recognized the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Library and Information Science (LIS) Program by proclaiming September 13 through 19 UH Mānoa Library and Information Science Program Week in honor of the program’s 50th anniversary.
“We’ve gone through many changes in 50 years, but what we all share is a sense that information is more than words on a page,” said Library and Information Science Program Chair Rich Gazan. “We create systems and spaces where people can connect with the knowledge and stories of others, so they can find their own voice.”
LIS student Wrayna Fairchild was one of ten educators nationwide to be selected by The Henry Ford organization as recipients of the Teacher Innovator Award. The award recognizes educators who are inspiring innovation, creativity, problem solving and critical thinking among their students.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the LIS program, we are pleased to announce the inaugural Information Horizons lecture. Dean Emeritus Miles Jackson will reflect on our history and discuss connections with the Asia-Pacific region.
Please join us in celebrating this milestone on Sunday, September 13 at 2:00 p.m. in Hamilton Library room 3F (ground floor). All are welcome and refreshments will be provided.
Co-sponsored by Hui Dui, ALA Student Chapter, and SAA Student Chapter.
