The (unofficial) blog of the BCLA Information Policy Committee
IPC & SLAIS student partnership
May 1, 2012Posted by on
The Information Policy Committee and students at the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, The iSchool at The University of British Columbia have partnered to provide a valuable resource to information professionals.
The Information Policy Committee is proud to feature work researched and written by students participating in the iSchool’s Information Policy course.
The students created entries on a variety of current information policy issues for posting on a private class wiki. Synopses from select entries will be published in the BCLA Browser. The same entries will be posted in their entirety on the IPC’s blog. Topics vary from GLBTQ resources in public libraries to Canada’s proposed copyright bill, C-11. These entries provide current information and analysis and allow you to quickly familiarize yourself with contemporary information policy issues.
