Two SLIS Masters students to be published in journal

Two School of Library and Information Studies Masters’ students, Amy Coughenour and Barbara Hughey, will be published in a forthcoming “student papers” issue of Documents to the People (DttP), the journal of the American Library Association’s Government Documents Roundtable.

The students wrote their papers in Dr. Lorri Mon’s LIS 5661 Government Information class in Spring 2009. They were nominated by Dr. Mon for inclusion in the issue and selected by DttP’s editorial board. Amy Coughenour’s article is entitled “Reparations for Past Mistakes: Atoning for the Internment of Japanese Americans During World War II” and Barbara Hughey’s article is entitled “The American Alien Tort Statute of 1789 and its Evolution as a Forum for International Human Rights Abuses.”  Congratulations to Amy and Barbara!
