SI Outstanding Student Award
Every year, the faculty of the School of Information recognize an outstanding student whose work, involvement with the community, and contributions to the field stand out among their peers. These students are nominated by a member of the faculty and voted on by the School.
Aparna Ghosh was selected in her second semester (at the MLIS program at the University of South Florida). She has spent many years working in libraries, starting from when she was an undergraduate at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, where she received her BA degree in sociology/anthropology. Since then, she has worked in the libraries of Loyola University Chicago and Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Aparna is also a 2020-2021 ALA Spectrum Scholar and a 2021-2023 ARL Kaleidoscope Diversity Scholar. She is especially interested in digital librarianship, metadata, and assessment.
