PhD recruitment

Bearing in mind the fact that this list has members right across 
the information chain most of whom are united in their devotion 
to hard information and the results of research in areas of 
common interest to all of us, I wonder if I may draw attention to 
the opportunities for higher degrees both a range of taught 
masters and (showcased here) doctoral studies. List members may 
know UCL DIS formerly UCL SLAIS as the home of the CIBER research 
group and the premier LIS school in the UK - but we cover as 
listed below a range of related subject areas and we aim to 
collaborate and cross-fertilize.

My colleague Dr. Elizabeth Shepherd, Reader, Archives and Records 
Management and Departmental Graduate Research Tutor has asked me 
to bring you attention to this notice. Obviously it is most of 
interest to those resident in the UK, but we get an increasing 
number of students from throughout the world. We have for example 
ten students from North America studying for an MA in Publishing.

Dr. Shepherd writes:

UCL Department of Information Studies is a leading centre for 
research in librarianship, information science, archives and 
records management, publishing and digital humanities, in one of 
the world's top universities. If you are considering doctoral 
study in any of these areas, we would like to talk to you! We are 
currently recruiting students to join our doctoral cohort from 
September 2011. We have a doctoral scholarship from the Arts and 
Humanities Research Council for which we are also inviting 

We are holding an open evening on Thursday 25 November 2010 from 
5-8pm and we would like to invite you to join us to hear more 
about doctoral study in DIS and for you to find out about us and 
ask questions. So that we can order sufficient refreshments, 
please let us know if you plan to come on 25 November by email 
to: infostudies-enquiries@ucl.ac.uk. If you want further 
information about making an application for doctoral study, 
please see: 

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with 
Elizabeth Shepherd

I hope this message is of interest to many of you. Do please pass 
it on.
