“To burn always with this hard, gem-like flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life.”

– Walter Pater

Nicole S. Delellis is a doctoral student in Library and Information Science at the University of Western Ontario, and a member of Dr. Rubin’s LiT.RL Lab. Her research interest resides within information behaviour. A background in English Literature and Psychology has influenced Nicole’s critical multi-disciplinary approach to the examination of human information behaviour. 

Past research includes a two-term guided research project under supervision of Dr. Rubin, which examined perceptions of IL and ‘fake news’ among academics’ integral to IL’s implementation within a post-secondary institution. A short three-page summary of results can be found in ASIS&T 2018 proceedings, and a joint-authorship book chapter extending discussion of this case study can be found in IGI Global’s Navigating Fake News, Alternative Facts, and Misinformation in a Post-Truth World.
