Dr. Lemieux wins literary award for blockchain article

UBC iSchool professor Victoria Lemieux has won ARMA International’s Britt Literary Award for her article, “Blockchain recordkeeping: a SWOT analysis” which appeared in the Nov/Dec 2017 issue of Information Management magazine.

This award, which was instituted in 1967 in memory of John F. X. Britt, one of the early pioneers in the modern information management profession, is given to the author of the best feature article appearing in Information Management magazine during the previous fiscal year.
