5 Apr 2022 18:27 | iSchools News (Administrator)

Dr. Ross J. Todd, an Associate Professor of Library and Information Science (LIS) at the School of Communication and Information (SC&I) and a world-renowned expert on adolescent information seeking and use, inquiry learning in digital information environments, and the transformative role of school libraries in the 21st century, has died. He was 70.

An educator in school library media, information literacy, and librarianship, Todd was deeply committed to information literacy and inquiry-based learning, application of evidence-based practice to the profession of school librarianship, and the promotion of research in the school library field. He wrote that his research had three interrelated foci: understanding how children learn and build new knowledge from information, information utilization for learning, and evidence-based practice for school libraries.
