Olivier Jarda is a third-year BCL/LLB student at McGill University’s Faculty of Law and an activist passionate about the environment. Olivier shared his experience in Environmental Law with Alex, Kristen (our new team member), and Anastasia over a brunch last November. The refreshing conversation inspired all of us to re-evaluate our relationship with our habitat and encouraged us to successfully complete the final projects of the hectic semester.

It’s time to announce our tentative schedule for the upcoming InfoNexus conference. We can’t wait to see you on February 6, 2015!
Some information specialists wonder,
“Aren’t we all information?”
Yuning Hu is, perhaps, the youngest second-year student in the Knowledge Management stream at McGill University‘s School of Information Studies. It is always my pleasure to work with Yuning on team projects given her background in Human Resources and talk to her about, well, everything given her cheerful and outgoing personality… This September, Yuning kindly agreed for a photo shoot with me which turned into the conversation about the Chinese word for information. Have a look at what came out of our day of sharing ideas, sunshine, and cronuts.
Jesse David Dinneen is a PhD student at McGill University‘s School of Information Studies (SIS) with a solid background in Philosophy. He convenes the Philosophy of Information reading group at SIS and was a Web 2.You 2013 speaker. Jesse generously shared his thoughts on some of the current topics in Information Studies.
Information specialists are multidisciplinary creatures, but it is not easy to keep up with so many different fields at the same time, especially, at the end of a semester… How to acknowledge all the voices coming from outside of the School of Information Studies? How to stay receptive to their take on information? Biology, Physics, Computer Science, Arts, Mathematics, Sociology, Psychology, Economics, Neuroscience, Genetics, Music… Is there a field that does not concern itself with information?
We are thrilled to announce that our next annual student-run conference is going to be held
on Friday, February 6, 2015!
Come join the conversation with information specialists already working in the field, still in training, and those who don’t realize they are information specialists. InfoNexus – that’s how we call the event now – will warm us all up on this probably cold winter day!
