About Anne Diekema

Anne (Ph.D. Syracuse University) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Instructional Technology & Learning Sciences in the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services. Currently, she is teaching aspiring school librarians all over the state of Utah as part of the School Library Media Administration program. When not working Anne likes to ride her bike, hike, ski, snowshoe, or curl up on the couch with a good book. Occasionally Anne can be found at schools with her therapy dog Rosa who helps improve kids' reading skills as part of the R.E.A.D. program.
Anne conducts research in the general area of information science and, more specifically, in information retrieval, digital libraries, information organization, and education. The main theme of her research is the discoverability of information. Anne studies how certain groups of people (educators, students) search for information, how entities like digital libraries make information accessible, and what can be done to improve the discoverability of educational resources so that they improve learning. The two main strands of her research are information discovery and information behavior.
