Survey time! Two LIS professors in Canada are conducting a survey of “culturally and linguistically diverse students who chose an ALA-accredited program for their graduate education.” If you are “culturally or linguistically diverse,” by which they mean immigrant to US or Canada or visible or aboriginal minority (with some additional qualifiers), help them out by responding to the survey. (I’m not culturally or linguistically diverse, so I haven’t seen the questions.)

We’ve talked about rigor before (or I have, at least) so this article‘s mention of “what [science] gained in rigor, it lost in verve” made me think it needed to be shared here. What do you think of injecting your personality into your academic writing?

Well. This isn’t good.
