Yee May Chua: Rittenhouse Award For Thesis on Malaria Control Recordkeeping

Students and graduates of Information Studies apply training and skills to a variety of archival and record keeping professions.

Yee May Chua (Class of ’13, MLIS) has been honored with the 2013 Medical Library Association’s Rittenhouse Award for her paper titled, “A Complex System Records Model: Medical Informatics and Recordkeeping for Wicked Problems.” The paper is based upon her master’s thesis research, which examined recordkeeping requirements for malaria control.

The Rittenhouse Award is presented annually for the best unpublished bibliographical, issue-based, or topic-based paper or report of research results, Web-based project, video, or resource on health sciences librarianship or medical informatics submitted by a student in an ALA-accredited school of library science or a trainee in an internship in health sciences librarianship or medical informatics.
