We are pleased to announce that the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, the iSchool at UBC, will hold its 7th Annual Research Day on Friday, March 10th, 2017, in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Golden Jubilee Room. Research Day showcases the contributions of the iSchool students and faculty working at the intersections of archival, information, library and children’s literature studies.
Questions about social media as sources of information about individuals (of different ages, genders, backgrounds) and communities, their uses in our personal and professional lives, and impact on our practices and overall well-being are central to the work of students and scholars across all our iSchool programs. Recognizing this common ground, this year’s Research Day will focus on the broad topic of “information, social media, and well-being,” considering the many connections social media now have with the way we do information, library, and archival studies.
