TWU to host Samuel Lazerow Memorial Lecture Oct. 6

09/22/06



DENTON — The possibilities for expanding traditional approaches to seeking information will be explored as the Texas Woman’s University School of Library and Information Studies hosts the Institute for Scientific Information’s Samuel Lazerow Memorial Lecture.

The lecture, scheduled at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, will take place in room 301 of the Administration Conference Tower (ACT), located on Administration Drive on TWU’s Denton campus. A reception will follow in the second-floor lobby of ACT. Admission is free. For a map of the Denton campus, visit www.twu.edu/maps.asp. For more information, contact the TWU Office of Lifelong Learning at (800) 250-7808 or (940) 898-3408.

The lecture, titled “Human Knowledge Seeking and Information Visualization: Exploring New Possibilities,” will feature Dr. Ray Uzwyshyn, an associate professor and head of the Department of Library Digital and Learning Technology Programs at the University of West Florida. Dr. Uzwyshyn states that, before children can speak or write, they encounter the world through vision, sound and touch. While many current information systems focus solely on text-based searching, his lecture will explore current possibilities and future directions for information systems.

Dr. Uzwyshyn currently serves as co-chair of the Special Interest Group in Visualization, Information and Sound for the American Society of Information Science and Technology.

Thompson Scientific sponsors the ISI Samuel Lazerow Memorial Lecture Program.
