It is our great pleasure to announce that Dr. Sanda Erdelez has been chosen as the 2015 ASIS&T SIG USE Award Winner for Outstanding Contribution to Information Behavior Research. Dr. Erdelez’s work on opportunistic discovery of information has had an ongoing and significant impact in the field of information behaviour research. Her Information Encountering Model is highly cited and has changed how we think about incidental information acquisition. Her contributions to the SIG USE Symposium on theoretical frameworks, followed by her role as co-editor (with Karen Fisher and Lynne McKechnie) of the book Theories of Information Behavior, has had a remarkable influence on information behavior research. The founding Director of the Information Experience Lab at the School of Information Science and Learning Technologies, University of Missouri, Dr. Erdelez is now Chair of the Library and Information Science Program. Dr. Erdelez has worked on research projects funded by the US National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Dell Corporation and Southwest Bell.

We are pleased to honor Dr. Erdelez with the 2015 ASIS&T SIG USE Outstanding Contribution to Information Behavior Research Award. As a recipient of this Award, Dr. Erdelez was also inducted into the ASIS&T SIG USE Academy of Fellows.
