A Holiday Gift to Information Science

A Holiday Gift to Information Science

Jenna Hartel

I am happy to give a holiday gift to all students, educators, researchers, and practitioners of Information Science. Information Science Puzzles & More is a fun, information-themed activity e-book, featuring a “berrypicking” maze; a crossword puzzle about our field’s values; and a word search for “information” in 50 languages. You’ll also find jokes and some interesting poetry (computer generated!), on the topic of information. The e-book could be given to students as a souvenir for the semester or pages might be used for extra credit. Alternatively, perhaps there is a family-member, friend, or colleague, who you would like to gently introduce to our field.

There’s a short video about it at my YouTube channel, BIBBLEium, or here is a direct link to the document on my website (jennahartel.info).

Warmest wishes,

  • I am an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto. As an interdisciplinary social scientist devoted to the field of Library and Information Science (LIS), I conduct research in three related areas: 1) information and the "higher things in life" that are pleasurable and profound; 2) visual and creative research methods; and 3) the history and theory of LIS. In the Master of Information program at the Faculty of Information, I mostly teach graduate students in the Library and Information Science concentration. Both my research and teaching aim to be an imaginative forms of intervention in the field of LIS, through unorthodox projects such as Metatheoretical Snowman, Welcome to Library and Information Science, and the iSquare Research Program.
