iConference 2019 was held last week at the University of Maryland, College Park. The iSchool Inclusion Institute (i3) was well-represented at this year’s iConference. In addition to many i3 students and affiliates in attendance at the conference, we had an impressive 9 papers, 7 posters, and 9 undergraduate symposium attendees!
Feedback from our scholars indicates that iConference is instrumental in building their self-efficacy and sense of belonging as Information Science researchers. Please see our latest newsletter for more information. We are certainly looking forward to iConference 2020 in Sweden!
