CIRI Blog Overview

iSchool faculty members have their own blog to share updates on their research projects, innovative ideas for advancing online teaching and learning, experiences with emerging technologies, thoughts on research methods, and whatever else is percolating in their minds. It’s a treasure trove of inspiration and knowledge.

New posts are published monthly. We encourage you to visit the blog often and share your comments.  

Most recently, Dr. Lisa Daulby blogged about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the “Right to be Forgotten”, and its implications for information professionals. Read her post on CIRI Blog.

“The ‘right to be forgotten’ debate is far from resolved and possess difficult questions about access to, and control of, digital information across national borders. While an individual’s right to privacy is paramount the “right to be forgotten” is not unlimited and will always need to be balanced against other fundamental data rights.” – Dr. Lisa Daulby

In Fall 2018, the American Library Association awarded Dr. Anthony Bernier a Diversity Research Grant (the committee’s top pick from among 30 proposals) to study the experience of the iSchool’s First Generation (FG) students. The project defined FG students as people coming from family backgrounds in which neither parent earned a professional degree.
