Dr Briony Birdi Announced as Runner Up of the 2016 iSchools Doctoral Dissertation Award.

Congratulations to Dr Briony Birdi who has been announced as the runner up of the 2016 iSchools Doctoral Dissertation Award.

The iSchools Doctoral Dissertation Award recognises outstanding work in the information field. The nominations are solicited from all members of the iSchools organisation and are judged by a selection committee drawn from leading international schools. 
Dr. Birdi’s thesis: ‘We are here because you were there: an investigation of the reading of, and engagement with, minority ethnic fiction in UK public libraries,’ addresses a current social and political issue involving minority ethnic fiction using three empirical studies to survey reading habits,” said Dr. Seadle, Award Co-Chair. “The reviewers also agreed that this dissertation was a serious competitor for the prize and clearly deserved to be the runner up.”
