Upcoming Conference Presentation

Looking forward to presenting at The Edge Conference in Edinburgh in March on Lending the Internet: Digital Inclusion and Poverty Reduction to share about TPL’s initiative, supported by Toronto’s Poverty Reduction Strategy and a donation from Google Canada, to lend WiFi hotspots to low income households without home internet.


Love having these visual notes made of my Evidence Based Library and Information Practice conference (EBLIP9) closing keynote! Thanks!

Leadership & Management Principles

Happy to be teaching again next semester in the UofA online MLIS program with Kathleen De Long — LIS 504: Leadership and Management Principles for Library and Information Services.

So pleased I get to do the good work of public libraries and still keep a foot back in the academy. Love both!

Being Evidence Based in Library and Information Practice

The amazing Drs. Denise Koufogiannakis and Alison Brettle have gathered together a super group of evidence based library and information practice researchers and practitioners in this new publication from Facet Publishing (Facet is part of CILIP, the UK library association): Being Evidence Based in Library and Information Practice. I’m proud to have contributed along with Dr. Becky Cole on the chapter on Public Libraries. Here’s the link to the OA version of the chapter because of course I arranged in my publishing contract the ability to make it openly available!
