Marija Dalbello is Associate Professor of Library and Information Science at Rutgers University. Her research focuses on the influence of culture and society on documentary practices, documents and representations that are used to diffuse knowledge. Within that broad framework, she published on transition from print to digital formats, with a focus on the emergent digital collections; on the transformation of visual culture between 1886 and 1935, as the wider problem of transformation of visual culture and modernity; and on documentary borderlands reflecting media transitions and study of print culture in a transnational framework. Her articles appear in The Library Quarterly, Journal of Documentation, Library & Information Science Research, and Book History among other scholarly journals. She co-edited "Visible Writings, Cultures, Forms, Readings" with Mary Shaw (2011), and "Print Culture in Croatia: The Canon and the Borderlands" with Tinka Katic (2006). She is currently co-editing "Constructing the Heritage of Cultures: A World History of Modern Librarianship" with Wayne Wiegand and Pam Richards. She bridges and combines styles of research undertaken by information scientists and historians of books, print, and information. She has been co-organizing the Rutgers Seminar on the History of the Book since 2006. In 2011 she chaired two book prizes: ASIS&T Best Information Science book prize and SHARP George A. and Jean S. DeLong Book History book prize. Her Ph.D. in Information Studies is from the University of Toronto and Masters of Library and Information Science from Kent State University. Her undergraduate degrees are from the University of Zagreb (Croatia).
