iSchool's third annual research fair a big success

The UW Information School's third annual Research Fair gave move than 100 participants an opportunity to view the research, scholarship, and creative work of the iSchool community and engage in conversation with faculty and students.

This year's Fair, held November 17 at the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture on the University of Washington campus, showcased diverse research topics reflecting the interdisciplinary and wide-ranging nature of the information discipline. More than 20 posters were presented by faculty and students, including early literacy, public access computing in Colombia, effects of meditation on multitasking performance, Second Life usage, visualizing information assurance, and negotiating cultural values in social media. Six live demonstrations by students added an interactive dimension to the event.
