Our Fall 2016 Edition is live!

Our Fall 2016 Edition – Best of Circulation – is now live! Thank you to all of our contributors (past and present.)

Fall 2016 Circulation, Vol. 5, Issue I


Student Authors

We are always excited to see students publish during their time here at the iSchool. Recently, in the Washington Library Association Journal, Alki, published an article by Tigh Bradley. The article titled “Reimagining Libraries Large and Small: The University of Washington Libraries and Yacolt Library Express” explores how different libraries work to serve their community. Bradley contemplates how population size drives library design and services provided. Read the full article here on pages 18 and 19.

Tigh Bradley is an MLIS Candidate in the iSchool and works as the Library Intern for the Templeton Radiology Library at the University of Washington Medical Center.

The Winter Issue Needs You!

Hello everyone!

As we all barricade ourselves in for some quality study time, I have a riddle for you.

What do Star Wars, the first week of break, and the deadline for Circulation submissions have in common?

Answer: They’re all next week!

That’s right, the deadline for getting your academic works or peer reviewer volunteer requests submitted is December 18. Email your submissions to circulationmag@gmail.com and your volunteer requests to me at nigelh2@uw.edu.

Remember, if you’re submitting a piece for publication, it doesn’t have to be a full length thesis on the ramifications of the small-worlds theory. If you have a class assignment you think we’d enjoy, email it to us and we’ll look it over.

If you’re interested in being a peer reviewer, simply put “Peer Reviewer Volunteer” in your email subject. The first round of submissions to be reviewed will be distributed January 9. Remember, just in case getting to read and edit your peers’ work isn’t awesome enough, it also looks great on a resume!

Mark your calendars, enjoy your week, and good luck with those final projects!

Become a Peer Reviewer!

Have you always wondered what academic publishing is like behind the scenes?


Craving some first hand experience in the world of academic journals?

Well, this opportunity is for you!

To be published

Email your work no later than December 18 to be featured in our winter issue. The topic at hand is scholarly work. Have an assignment from another class that you’d love to share with your peers? Email your work at circulationmag@gmail.com

To be a peer reviewer

We’re expecting plenty of submissions, and we’re going to need help giving each one the attention it deserves. As a peer reviewer, you’ll have a chance to shape the Winter Issue, build your editing skills, and offer constructive feedback to your cohort.

Interested in becoming a peer reviewer or simply want more information? Send an email to circulationmag@gmail.com. Simply include “Peer Reviewer Volunteer” or “Peer Reviewer Volunteer Information” in the subject line.

Please get your emails in by December 18 so we’ll have time to get submissions matched with reviewers.

Last year I was a peer reviewer – it was a great experience as I was able to read other students work and provide constructive feedback. Circulation does a fantastic job creating an experience that is very similar to academic publications. Plus, it’s a great way to be involved with a low time commitment.

To celebrate what is bound to be a successful Winter edition, Circulation will be hosting an event to have a lively academic discussion (and food for those attending in person). More information soon to come but mark your calendars for Feb. 23rd, 2016, 6:30-8:00pm in the Allen Auditorium.


Whether you are currently job searching or nearing graduation and it’s on your mind, we can all relate to the job hunt in the information and library realm. S. Williams captures this environment extremely well in her blog post “Hungry“, as well as how to keep your cool in the process.

What do you think?

More on “Uncertainty Principle”

We’re getting excited for this month’s One School, One Story being held online this Sunday, October 26!

If you’ve already read the story and are feeling antsy to know more, check out the author’s notes on it over at her blog:


Here, she talks about the action and dystopian themes in the story (and future novel!).  She writes that , “dystopia is about perspective,” meaning that some people are already living that kind of existence.  It’s all to do with technology access and literacy.

See you Sunday at: https://ischool.adobeconnect.com/circulation/

New Blog Home!

This is all part of our effort to integrate Circulation activities to one site.  Please read back through our previous posts and check back for new ones!  Happy Wednesday!
