Christine L. Borgman
EDUCAUSE, the Coalition for Networked Information, and the Association of Research Libraries are pleased to announce that Christine L. Borgman, Professor and Presidential Chair in Information Studies, UCLA, has been named the 2011 recipient of the Paul Evan Peters Award. The award, named for CNI’s founding director, recognizes notable, lasting achievements in the creation and innovative use of information resources and services that advance scholarship and intellectual productivity through communication networks.

Borgman’s wide-ranging research interests (including new technologies and their underlying social and policy changes), her more than 200 publications (including Scholarship in the Digital Age and From Gutenberg to Global Information Infrastructure), her work as lead investigator for the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing, and her service on numerous national boards and committees (including the Task Force on Cyberlearning for the National Science Foundation, US National Academies’ Board on Research Data and Information, and the US National Committee on Data for Science and Technology) are among the many reasons she was selected for the 2011 Paul Evan Peters Award.

 “Having had the chance to work with Chris as a member of the NSF Task Force on Cyberlearning, I have seen firsthand how effectively she frames and navigates emerging issues in the use of technology to advance teaching, learning, and research. I cannot imagine a finer candidate for the Paul Evan Peters Award, and I am pleased that EDUCAUSE can join with CNI and ARL in recognizing her contributions to higher education.”—Diana Oblinger, President and CEO, EDUCAUSE
