The Fascinating World of Festschrifts

Infofilia: Celebrating Linda C. Smith, the Renaissance Scholar of Library and information Science – “Today, we meet another living polymath, the library, and information sciences, interdisciplinary scholar Linda C. Smith, Professor Emerita, School of Information Sciences, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. In the 1970s, Linda was already investigating the potential of artificial intelligence for libraries and collecting competencies from the sciences, medicine, the humanities. We also take a peek into the fascinating world of festschrifts, an academic tradition dedicated to honoring the remarkable contributions of scholars, with a personal story about my participation in a festschrift project that began two years ago.”
