Launch of the International research group on sustainability of information, communication and documentation (GRICODD)

On the occasion of the 5th symposium specializing in information science (COSSI), whose work took place from 19 to 21 June at the Shippagan campus of the Université de Moncton, Professor Monica Mallowan announced the creation and launch projects research group on sustainability information, communication and documentation (GRICODD).

Sustainability is an emerging theme in the field of information science, communication and documentation (IDCS). Yet little attention in IDCS, this field of research carries major challenges for the coming years and the group of French-Canadian research aims to decrypt the role of this dimension in representations, in practices and culture information, in communication and documentation.

The first scientific communications exploratories of GRICODD were presented at the 5th COSSI, while the Conference of the Library and Information Community of Quebec in 2013 has been the next step where the group's work has been submitted to the reflection of the research and practice community.

The membres of GRICODD thank the Shippagan campus and the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research at the University of Moncton for their support in the launch of the research's group.
