Randolf Mariano

PhD Fellow/Researcher/Lecturer in Library, Media and Documentation Science


I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Language and Culture under the Media and Documentation Science Research Unit at UiT, The Arctic University of Norway.

Visiting Research Fellowship at the following institutions:

Department of Global Engagement Initiatives, Pattee & Paterno Libraries, Pennsylvania State University, USA

As a member of the research group "LAMCOM - Libraries, Archives, and Museums in the Community, "I am focused on studying the essential role of knowledge, cultural and innovation diplomacy towards LAMs' learning environments in providing educational, economic, and social opportunities to the civic public.

Prior to starting my Ph.D. at UiT, I worked as a Research Librarian and Digital Engagement Specialist at the US Department of State and the Republic of Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I studied for both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Library and Information Science at the University of the Philippines.
