iSchoolers in the News
We celebrated the class of 2018 at Convocation on June 2. Here’s our roundup of all the awards, along with photos and video of the ceremony.
Professor David Levy talked to the Everett Herald about how people might like the #DeleteFacebook idea, but will struggle to actually see it through.
Rolf Hapel, our incoming Distinguished Practitioner in Residence, has a really interesting point of view on the role of libraries in civic life. Learn more about him in a Q&A with Library Journal.
The iSchool’s Jason Yip and Jin Ha Lee, in partnership with the Seattle Public Library, recently were awarded a $353,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to study participatory design in libraries. GeekWire wrote about the grant and the project’s intent to spread these methods beyond SPL.
Graduating Informatics students Ethan Anderson and Joycie Yu will serve as the iSchool’s gonfalonieres (banner carriers) at UW Commencement on June 9. The pair will lead their class into Husky Stadium.

"One of the things that I’ve learned is that innovation and ingenuity are not about physical resources. It’s much more about thinking and approach than it’s a matter of money." Rolf & his team modeled this behavior long before @Dokk1Aarhus opened, so excited to learn from him https://t.co/49BMrBt1rB

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to see @Hapelr's work in Aarhus in person. He and his team have really achieved something special and it's deeply influenced how I think about libraries. Glad to have him stateside! https://t.co/f1AgYkGcwi
