Art, Drama, and Music Librarian, Queen’s University

Much of my research is informed by my educational development work at Queen’s Centre for Teaching and Learning where I led an educational research campus initiative. I was senior editor of the Journal of Applied Research in Higher Education for five years and on Queen’s General Research Ethics Board for four years. Research areas I’ve explored include: student perceptions of inquiry-based learning (ethnography, participant observation, group interviews, survey); how a community of practice supports learning (feedback analysis); librarian impact in reference consultations (dialogue, video, concept mapping); student views of inclusivity (survey, interviews); how educational research supports quality assurance (document analysis); and approaches to decolonizing information literacy (learning journals).

Carolyn Doi

I am as Associate Librarian at the University of Saskatchewan Library, where I provide subject and research support for music, education, and sociology. I have a background in music performance and history (B. Mus., UVIC, 2007) and an MLIS from McGill University (2010). I have experience with synthesis reviews in interdisciplinary and social sciences topics. My research portfolio includes experience with qualitative and mixed-methods research on topics related to online education, music collections, cultural heritage. I am the Principle Investigator for Sounds of Home, a SSHRC-IDG grant funded research project focused on local music collecting in Canadian cultural heritage organizations. Other research interests include online learning and inclusive and anti-racist research support and collecting practices in libraries. I have additional experience with research mentorship, grant funding, and research project management. As the co-lead editor for CAML Review/Revue de l’ACBM, I bring experience with scholarly publishing in the Canadian context, in particular inclusive editing and publishing practices.

ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-4018-4137 

I am a liaison librarian in the Elizabeth Dafoe Library at the University of Manitoba. My role at the libraries includes collection management, teaching information literacy, staff training, liaising with the Faculty of Education and Department of Sociology & Criminology, and reference services for faculty, students, and staff. I am also the Data Librarian for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

I received a BA double major in History and Classical Studies from the University of North Dakota in May 2013 and an MLIS from Western University in December 2014. I have worked at UManitoba since April 2015 in various roles including science, humanities, and now social sciences.

My research interests include information authority, reference ethics, and data services in libraries. I am currently preparing for a research leave that will begin this July, where I will be studying how major media outlets report the science of climate change to the public and the accuracy of that reporting.

Patrick Gamsby

I am the Scholarly Communications Librarian at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Prior to this, I was the Scholarly Communications Librarian and Lecturer in the History of Ideas at Brandeis University. Before that, I was the Data Curator and Scholarly Communications Intern at Duke University. I have a B.A. (Honours) in Sociology from the University of Western Ontario (2005), a Master of Library and Information Science, also from the University of Western Ontario (2006), a Master in Environmental Studies from York University (2008), and a Ph.D. in Human Studies from Laurentian University (2012). 

My research interests include Scholarly Communication, Open Access, Interdisciplinarity, Critical Theory, Boredom, Modernity, Space, and Everyday Life. I am currently on sabbatical completing four books, which are the culmination of four research projects I’ve been working on for the past fifteen years. The first book was published in September 2022 (Henri Lefebvre, Boredom, and Everyday Life) and I am under contract for three other books. My second book, The Discourse of Scholarly Communication, will be published in late 2023. This book explores the theoretical underpinnings of scholarly communication from the 17th century to the present day. My third book, The Dialectic of Herbert Marcuse, which will be published in the summer 2024, is an intellectual biography of Critical Theorist Herbert Marcuse, stemming from my 2013 archival discovery of a first draft of his most famous book One-Dimensional Man. I also just signed a contract for my fourth book, which will be published in mid/late 2025 and is tentatively titled Henri Lefebvre, Metaphilosophy, and Modernity.
