The Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), which is sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and EDUCAUSE, is pleased to announce the selection of doctoral student Bergis Jules and master’s student Laima Augustaitis as the 2018 recipients of the Paul Evan Peters Fellowships for graduate study in library and information sciences. The fellowship was established to honor the memory of Paul Evan Peters CNI’s founding executive director; it recognizes outstanding scholarship and intellectual rigor, a commitment to civic responsibility and democratic values, and imagination.
Bergis Jules is university archivist at the University of California (UC), Riverside, where he is currently enrolled in the public history PhD program. He holds masters’ degrees from Indiana University in library and information science and in African American and African Diaspora Studies, and a BA from Earlham College. Jules is already well established in the archives community for his notable contributions to web archiving, which is also the focus of his doctoral research.
This year’s recipient of the master’s level fellowship, Laima Augustaitis, is a student in the Master of Science in Information program at the University of Michigan (UM), where she previously earned a BS in movement science. She became interested in using data-driven methods to address social inequalities while working with patients during clinical hours as part of her undergraduate degree requirements.
