My name is Colin Rhinesmith. I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Oklahoma. My research and teaching interests are focused within the areas of social and community informatics.
My interests also include infrastructure studies, telecommunications and information policy, and ethnography of information and communication technology. I am particularly interested in understanding the ways in which individuals and groups use information and communication technology in support of community-defined development goals.
I received my Ph.D. in Library and Information Science from the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and I received my B.A. and M.A. in Media Studies from Emerson College in Boston, MA. Thank you for stopping by.
