On 9 March 2018, the 8th annual iSchool@UBC Research Day will be celebrating and showcasing its faculty and student research at UBC.
Each year, the iSchool hosts a Research Day, where students and faculty across all of the programs within the School showcase their research in the form of posters, talks and demonstrations. iSchool faculty are provincially, nationally and internationally recognized for their contributions and leadership in Library, Archival and Information Studies research.
By providing students with the opportunity to be directly involved in faculty research, the School seeks to enrich the overall quality of the educational experience. As well, students are encouraged to work independently on research projects that reflect their own interests and career goals. By expanding research opportunities and experiences for all students as they prepare them for their future roles as professional and academic leaders in the information professions. Research Day showcases the contributions of iSchool students and faculty working at the intersections of archival, information, library and children’s literature studies.
