Shelagh K. Genuis, a recent graduate of the doctoral program at the
University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, whose dissertation committee was
chaired by Dr. Heidi Julien, now Director of SLIS at The University of
Alabama, has won the prestigious 2011 ASIS&T ProQuest Doctoral Dissertation
Award. The ProQuest award recognizes an outstanding recent doctoral
candidate whose research contributes significantly to an understanding of
some aspect of information science, and the prize is intended to encourage
new Ph.D.s to participate in professional associations, through provision of
travel assistance to the ASIS&T conference and an opportunity for the
awardee to present the winning research. Dr. Genuis was chosen from 20
finalists, and her dissertation is titled "Making sense of evolving health
information: Navigating uncertainty in everyday life."  Look for her at this
year's ASIS&T conference in New Orleans in October, 2011.
