Emmett Leahy Award

DIS is delighted to announce that Dr Laura Millar has been awarded the 2021 Emmett Leahy Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Information and Records Management Profession (https://emmettleahyaward.org/  ). Laura said, “I am honoured to receive the Emmett Leahy Award for 2021. As an alumna of UCL and an Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Information Studies, I am grateful for the fellowship of my UCL colleagues, who have supported my efforts to raise awareness of the value of data, records, and archives as sources of evidence and memory. For over a century, UCL’s Department of Information Studies has been a world leader in information, records, and archives management, working to build professional capacity while recognising the critical linkages between different disciplines. I look forward to continuing to work with the UCL DIS community to increase public understanding of the value of evidence for accountability, identity, and memory.
