The JLSC team is thrilled to welcome Christie Hurrell as our new Co-Editor of Reviews. Christie comes with robust editorial experience and scholarly communication knowledge. Hailing from the University of Calgary, Christie's international perspective will also benefit the JLSC team, authors, and readers as we explore new resources in scholarly communication.
Christie Hurrell is the Digital Initiatives and Scholarly Communications librarian at the University of Calgary. Her role involves advancing digital research initiatives and partnerships, working on open access and scholarly communication initiatives, and coordinating Lab NEXT, the library’s digital scholarship collaboration space and makerspace. Christie’s research and practice interests stem from her interest in new ways of sharing and tracking the impact of research. Christie has an MA in Communications and Culture from Ryerson and York Universities, and an MLIS from the University of British Columbia.
Christie joins Julia Lovett, who has been serving as Co-Editor of Reviews since 2018, on the Brief Reviews of Books and Products editorial team.
Thank you to our outgoing Reviews Editor
JLSC also wants to acknowledge our fantastic outgoing Co-Editor of Reviews, Carmen Mitchell. As one of the first editors of Brief Reviews of Book and Products, Carmen was instrumental in creating a solid foundation for a thriving reviews program at JLSC. We will truly miss her insightful editorial work and collegiality, and wish her the best as she moves on to future endeavors.
