The Canadian Association for Information Science (CAIS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Valerie Nesset as Editor of the Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science, starting November 2015.

Dr. Nesset earned her Ph.D. at McGill University and joined the Department of Library and Information Studies at SUNY at Buffalo in 2008. She earned tenure and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2014. Dr. Nesset’s research lies at the intersection of information behavior and information literacy, which she has published in journals such as Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science, Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, Information Research, Education Today, and Library and Information Science Research. Dr. Nesset has editorial experience with the McGill Journal of Education, where she was instrumental in helping the journal to transition from a print-based subscription to gold open access (i.e., freely available over the Web). Since 2011 she has been the Book Reviews Editor for Education for Information, and she has recently joined the editorial board of Library and Information Science Research. Dr. Nesset reviews for a number of journals, including Journal of Library and Information Science and Journal of Information Literacy. She has served on the program committees for the annual conferences of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) and the CAIS. In 2010, she co-chaired the CAIS conference, and she co-chaired the poster track for the 2009 ASIS&T conference. Dr. Nesset also chaired the Association for Library and Information Science Education Nominating Committee in 2008-09.

The CAIS Board would like to thank Dr. Clément Arsenault for maintaining the high quality of CJILS under his editorship since 2011. We are grateful for his service to the information science community. The Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science is published by the University of Toronto Press on a quarterly basis in print, and is available online on Project MUSE. We encourage submissions to the journal, directly to the editor. Starting November 2015, please submit manuscripts to Dr. Valerie Nesset, vmnesset@buffalo.edu.
