Tiffany Chow wins Braverman prize
MSI HCI student Tiffany Chow has won the Progressive Librarians Guild Miriam Braverman Memorial Prize with her essay “Design Implications: How space can transform the library and its public.”
The prize is awarded annually to the best paper about some aspect of the social responsibilities of librarians, libraries, or librarianship. The Progressive Librarians Guild provides “a forum for the open exchange of radical views on library issues.”
Tiffany’s winning essay will be published in the summer 2011 edition of Progressive Librarian Journal. She also receives a stipend to attend the American Library Association meeting this month in New Orleans.
A former youth development worker in New York’s Spanish Harlem, Tiffany studies the effects of accessibility to information in communities of color.Explore posts in the same categories: Students
