iConnecting @ iSchool

Above: Kate is not a firefighter, but she did work at the Fire Sciences Library.

This week U of T’s Faculty of Information hosted iConnecting@iSchool, an annual exhibition of special library projects that has absolutely nothing to do with Apple. The event was meant to showcase the work that students carried out at their practicum placements for a course on managing corporate and special information centres. Here are just some highlights of the evening.

Rebecca went to MaRS. Then she returned to tell us all about it.

Cathryn did research for a documentary on Canadian design for the Design Exchange.

Kim composed a research guide on the Indigenous Perspectives Collection at U of T’s Bora Laskin Law Library.

Some students matched their posters.

Others decorated their work station with festive colours.

There were many other great projects including ones for large Canadian law firms, the Ontario Legislative Library, the ROM, BiblioCommons, Knowledge Ontario, Marion Powell Women’s Health Information Centre, Ontario Ministry of the Environment, and even the Library of Congress.

I worked on a current awareness tool (think aggregating RSS feeds and creating a newsletter) for BMO’s Legal, Corporate and Compliance Group (think law library).

And it’s true. Librarians can’t resist chocolate (money).
