iSchoolers in the News
For the annual print edition of iNews, we featured several students participating in iSchool research projects. Students working on such projects pick up valuable experience and keep the school’s research moving.
The UW Daily also featured students participating in research, including Jion Yi, a senior Informatics major. “Reaching out to the faculty members is so intimidating, right?” Yi said. “But once you do it, you realize it’s not that big of a deal.”
Assistant Professor Megan Finn shared an excerpt of her new book, “Documenting Aftermath,” on Culture Digitally. Finn’s book looks at how information infrastructures respond to disasters.
Associate Professor Katie Davis shared a report on Scientia about her work using digital badges to recognize children’s achievements outside the classroom.
iSchool alum Sunny Kim, now a teen librarian at the Rainier Beach branch of the Seattle Public Library, was featured on the South Seattle Emerald as part of Trans Awareness Week. Kim works to make libraries inclusive places for young people: “A lot of my work is helping folks on their worst day. I try to engage in all situations generously and in a friendly way.”
