May 1, 2012

SLIS Assistant Professor Joan Beaudoin has been busy publishing and presenting on issues in the digital humanities and visual information access and retrieval. She recently presented "A Case Study of Visual Literacy among Library and Information Science Students" at the Visual Resources Association's 30th annual conference on April 20th, 2012 in Albuquerque, NM. In February, she presented a paper in a special ARLIS/NA session at the 100th College Art Association's Annual Conference in Los Angeles. The presentation was titled "Yours, mine, and our common cultural heritage: losing control of digital visual information." 

She also published in and co-edited a special issue (April / May 2012) on the digital humanities and information visualization in the Bulletin of the American Society for Information Science and Technology with Sarah Buchanan. To see the full issue, please visit
Dr. Beaudoin's research interests will be particularly beneficial to students interested in SLIS's Arts and Museum Librarianship Certificate, which is now accepting applications for its Fall 2012 cohort.
