History and Foundations of Library and Information Science

  • LIS 590HF
  • Instructor: Alistair Black
  • Fall 2010
  • Location 109 LISB Monday 1:00 - 3:50 p.m.

This course introduces students to the historical foundations of library and information science and provides a basis for exploring more recent theoretical and experimental developments. The course examines the complex interactions of socio-cultural, technological and professional factors underlying the emergence and current status of LIS as a field of investigation and practice. It also suggests the relevance of historical study to fundamental and continuing problems of information management, despite the technological and organizational developments that have occurred over the centuries. The required reading is wide ranging but highly selected given the course's scope. This course is required of all first semester PhD students.
