The Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois is delighted to announce that Assistant Professor Bonnie Mak has been named the 2013-2014 GSLIS Centennial Scholar<http://www.lis.illinois.edu/articles/2013/08/mak-named-centennial-scholar> in recognition and support of her accomplishments and promising scholarship.

Bonnie's research areas include the history of the book and the cultural production of knowledge, with a particular focus on the interplay between oral, scribal, printed, and digital cultures. Her book, How the Page Matters, in which she examines a fifteenth-century text as a manuscript, a printed work, and a digital edition, was published by the University of Toronto Press in 2011 and released in paperback the following year. Bonnie has also published on the notion of authenticity, especially as it relates to the preservation of archival records and the emerging field of digital forensics.

While a 2012-2013 Faculty Fellow in the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH), Bonnie embarked upon her next book-length project, which offers a cultural history of digitizations. The GSLIS Centennial Scholar award will help her continue that work.

It is our great pleasure to recognize and support Bonnie's scholarship with this award.

The Centennial Scholar Award is endowed by alumni and friends of GSLIS.
