The Traditional Library School
  • One degree program - professional masters
  • Small numbers
  • students lt200
  • faculty lt10
  • staff lt5
  • budget lt1 million
  • Low, or even no visibility - on campus and in the
    broader community
  • Inadequate space and facilities
  • Low research profile and funding
  • Low level of gifts and fund-raising
  • Core constituency (library field) is often
    disgruntled and minimally supportive

7
The Reality of Higher Education Today
  • The research imperative produce or perish.
  • For academic programs, there is no free lunch.
  • If not high impact, at least high visibility.
  • Fund raising who loves ya, baby?
  • Big (or at least critical mass) is beautiful.
  • While not futile its still feudal.

8
The Result for Library Schools
  • Closings (although not as many as you might
    think, particularly in recent years).
  • Move to one of many departments in a larger unit
    (e.g., liberal arts).
  • Merger with another unit (communications,
    computer science, education)
  • Expansion, continued independence, success and
    flourishing!

11
The Independent Information SchoolCritical
Understandings and Approaches
  • Recognize the politics, pressures, and priorities
    of higher education today.

Librarianship
  • Thriving in information schools
  • Enrollment is up
  • Status is high
  • Inclusive traditional areas and new
    opportunities

47
Michigan Perspective
  • From the start, the leadership of the School of
    Information was very concerned that taking
    library out of the title must not result in
    taking library out of the school.

Unpublished Email Communication John Leslie King,
Dean and Professor, School of Information,
University of Michigan, January 2004.
