The School of Information Management is pleased to announce that Master of Library and Information Studies student, Domenic Rosati, has been selected as the fourth recipient of the Dalhousie-Horrocks National Leadership Fund.
This Fund was established in 2007 to honour Dr. Norman Horrocks, OC, PhD, FCLIP (1927-2010) for his outstanding leadership in the field of librarianship in North America, Australia, and Europe. Over several decades Dr. Horrocks, former Director of the School of Information Management and Dean of the Faculty of Management at Dalhousie University, pursued a distinguished career of very active involvement in professional associations in the United Kingdom, Cyprus, Australia, the United States, and Canada. His many contributions, for which he received local, national and international recognition, have advanced the field and the careers of countless individuals. The fund supports a scholarship and an associated lecture series through an endowment donated by the many former students, colleagues, friends and admirers of Norman Horrocks.
Domenic has work experience in various archival and records management settings, and some recent projects include collections assessment of born-digital records in the Dalhousie Archives, the testing and analysis of the Gitbook publishing platform, and the implementation of a crowdsourced transcription web application with the Nova Scotia Archives. He is currently working with the Dalhousie University Archives and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in order to collect, preserve, and make their records available. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his partner and two kids, and is a voracious reader of reference and textbooks.
