Short biography: 

Nadine Desrochers is an Assistant Professor at the Université de Montréal’s school of library and information science (EBSI). She holds a PhD in French Literature from the University of Ottawa and an MLIS from Western University. Her research examines the paratext and perceptions surrounding cultural products, both in print and online, as well as the information-seeking and information-sharing habits of creators. In so doing, she builds bridges with her humanities background, offering an interdisciplinary outlook into the role of libraries and other information providers as cultural agents. Her work on the paratext has been presented at various annual conferences (American Society for Information Science and Technology, Canadian Association for the Study of Book Culture, Congrès des milieux documentaires). Her communication entitled, “Private Practice, Public Gratitude: Following the Traces of Information Behaviours in Acknowledgement Paratext”, co-written with Jen (J.L.)
