Sharon Han has been selected as the winner of the 2019 Student Writing Award<http://ala.org/lita/awards/exlibris> sponsored by Ex Libris Group and the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) for her paper titled “Weathering the Twitter Storm: Early Uses of Social Media as a Disaster Response Tool for Public Libraries During Hurricane Sandy.” Han is a Master of Science in Library and Information Science candidate at the University of Illinois School of Information Sciences.

“Sharon Han’s paper is an excellent case study of the nascency of social media that also offers pragmatic guidance for libraries responding to community needs in times of crisis. Her substantial dataset, well-developed taxonomy, and the systematic coding and analysis resulted in interesting research findings as well as fertile grounds for further research on social media as an extension of library services,” said Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, the Chair of this year’s selection committee.

When notified she had won, Han remarked, “I am honored to receive the the LITA/Ex Libris Student Writing Award for 2019. As a library student, I am grateful for the professional library community that supports student research and development. I would like to thank the award committee, Ex Libris, Professor Melissa Ocepek (UIUC) for encouraging me to apply, and my friends, mentors, and family for their support.”
