Students in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication (JMC) had the chance to practice their interviewing skills on a U.S. Senator on March 30, 2016.

Professional-in-Residence Connie Schultz, Pulitzer Prize winner and nationally syndicated columnist, invited U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (her husband) to visit her Writing Across Platforms Class. Students were assigned to research for his visit, cover his talk like a news conference, and then file a deadline story before class was over.

Marcia Lei Zeng, Ph.D., School of Library and Information Science, and Julaine Clunis, student in the School of Library and Information Science, (with Vladimir Alexiev) presented “Innovative Use of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) that are Published as Linked Open Data (LOD)” at the first Asian Networked Knowledge Systems Workshop.

Richard (Rick) Feinberg, Department of Anthropology, and Alexander Mawyer, University of Hawaii at Manoa, authored “Response to Nash on Creole Spatiality and Pitcairn Island.”

The second edition of a book co-authored by Marcia Lei Zeng, School of Library and Information Science, and Jian Qin, titled Metadata, has been released by ALA Neal Schuman Publishers. The first edition was published in 2008. It has been called the definitive text on metadata.
