2016 Consultants

Annette Li

Annette Li

Annette is currently a second-year student in the Masters of Information Studies program at McGill University. Although she is interested in the Information Technology side of the program, Libraries and Archives have drawn her in as well; she has always been a Jack of all Trades and unable to commit to one specific field (Which makes InfoNexus a perfect fit for her extracurricular interests). She’s considering becoming a Map Librarian, which would fit her background in Geography, Environmental Science, and Geographic Information Systems, but perhaps one of the speakers at InfoNexus will present on an entirely different job in the field and she will sway in a new direction.

 

Patricia Di Palma

Patricia Di Palma

Patricia is a second-year MISt student most interested in archival work. She is committed to facilitating productive public access to archives. Aspiring to work in the archives of a government agency, she hopes to one day help preserve social and political heritage through transparent and objective access to information.

Patricia is eager to collaborate with the InfoNexus team and excited to bring together a diverse selection of information specialists at this year’s conference.
