Tusculum College’s Anne Osborne, assistant library director for distance learning, and Kathy Hipps, information literacy librarian, have been invited to participate in the Undergraduate Research Behavior workshop sponsored by the Council on Library and Information Resources and The Council of Independent Colleges.
The workshop will be led by Nancy Fried Foster, lead anthropologist for the River Campus Libraries at the University of Rochester and co-manager of the Libraries’ Digital Initiatives Unit. Foster possesses a Ph.D. in applied anthropology from Columbia University and a diploma from Oxford University in social anthropology. She conducts research on faculty, staff and students, documenting work habits and identifying needs for web-based products to support research and writing.
The workshop will take place September 13-14 at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. Due to the generosity of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, there are no registration or program fees for workshop participants and all travel and lodging costs will also be covered.
Osborne and Hipps were awarded the invitation after successful completion and review of their program application. Osborne has a Master of Arts in library and information science from the University of Iowa and has been with Tusculum College since 2002. Hipps has a Master of Science in information science from the University of Tennessee and has been with the Garland Library since October 2002.
“The entire library staff is very excited for and proud of these two dedicated professionals,” said Library Director Jack Smith. “This is a huge opportunity that will benefit not only Ms. Osborne and Ms. Hipps, but also all of the students the library serves.”
