Research and Assessment Grant Awardee
The Research and Assessment Committee would like to congratulate this year’s recipient of the MAC Research and Assessment Grant. The Research and Assessment Grant awards up to $2000 to fund a research project in health librarianship for a MAC member.
This year’s winner is Mary White of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Her project, entitled “#WritingPapers: Learning about the Information Work-Processes of Public Health Students”, will use “visual methods and interview techniques [to] provide insights into a variety of public health students’ workflows as they approach the task of conducting literature reviews, or ‘writing papers’”. The grant funds will be used to provide incentives to study participants.
