Elliott Hauser, a Ph.D. student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has been awarded the 2012 Roger K. Summit Scholarship. The scholarship is named in the honor Dr. Summit, the original founder of Dialog, for his contribution to progress in the field of information science.
Elliott is currently studying information science, and he specifically focused on the problem of data description -- "accounting for the sources, transformation and analyses that data have undergone during the research process." The award was presented to Elliott at the SLA Annual Conference in recognition of his outstanding performance and interest in electronic information services.
ProQuest Vice President of Global Training, Anthea Gotto, noted that "Elliott's research has the potential to change the information services such as ProQuest can support serious researchers and their quests for new knowledge."
