OCLC Research Technical Intern wins Student Writing Award

 
Timothy J. Dickey has won the 2007 LITA/Ex Libris Student Writing Award, which will be presented on Sunday, 24 June, at the LITA Awards Reception at the ALA National Conference. In addition to his work with OCLC Research, Timothy is a graduate student in the Kent State School of Library and Information Science.

The award-winning paper is titled, "FRBRization of a Library Catalog: Better Collocation of Records, Leading to Enhanced Search, Retrieval, and Display." It reviews the challenges and benefits of a FRBRized OPAC, with special consideration of the benefits to music, theology, fine arts, and literature collections.

The award is sponsored by Ex Libris Group and the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA).  The paper will appear in the LITA journal, Information Technology and Libraries.

Congratulations, Timothy!
