Dr. Heather Lea Moulaison’s primary research interests focus on the intersection of the organization of information and emerging web technologies. She is particularly interested in studying the use of technologies, including digital libraries and cloud computing, as mechanisms for organization and access, especially over the long term. Moulaison also has a strong interest in comparative librarianship as evidenced in her ties to French-speaking LIS institutions. Moulaison has taught courses on organization of information (including Info Org, Cataloging, Indexing/Abstracting, Metadata) and Emerging Technologies in Libraries. Moulaison earned a doctorate in Library and Information Science from Rutgers University, (USA) and an MSLIS and an MA in French, both from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (USA); Moulaison was the recipient of a Fulbright Senior Scholar grant in 2008-2009 allowing her to teach in French at Morocco’s Ecole des sciences de l’information (ESI) for the academic year.
