Spotlights
  • Two iSchool alumni are presenting a workshop at the Information Architecture Conference (IAC) on how to utilize a Usage Maturity Matrix to assist with making information architecture decisions. Another iSchool alumna is a 2021 IAC Equity Scholarship recipient.

  • The College of Communication and Information stands in solidarity with Kent State University and condemns acts of hate and racism against Asian and Asian American communities. CCI is committed to the university’s mission of fostering a community that is safe and welcoming for all.

  • In 2018, Dr. Karen W. Gavigan was awarded the Jacqueline M. Albers Guest Scholar in Children's Literature Fellowship by the Reinberger's Children's Library Center. Now, she is collaborating with Dr. Kasey Garrison to share that research. The pair have just launched a website and are sharing their work at multiple conferences and in publications.

  • As executive director of OhioLINK, she will lead negotiations with publishers and information vendors to acquire shared electronic resources for OhioLINK’s 117 member libraries.
