LIS 950: Libraries and community

The purpose of this seminar is to explore an important topic in library and information studies in depth — in all its intertwined historical, cultural, philosophical, and political aspects — through a graduate reading/discussion seminar. The topic varies each time the course is taught; this time around, we will focus on "libraries and community"

Soojin's Intro

Hello all,

I am Soojin Park, a second-year doctoral student in SLIS. I am from South Korea. I have work experiences as an academic librarian, administrative staff, and researcher in Chonnam National University, Korea. I got my MLIS from University of Western Ontario, Canada, in 2003.

I like to understand people in the context of information behavior on which our intellectual lives are based. Academically, I am interested in documentation and information systems as well as social informatics. Also, communication and linguistics are interesting subjects.

Personally, I understand the libraries as institutionalization of collected information behavior systems in certain societies. From this class, I want to enjoy academic works for defining the identity of libraries (specifically public libraries) in communities and develop my understanding of the libraries. Furthermore, I want to get academic insight for research on historical contexts. If I make a mastery paper in this course, it would be great.
