Information Access Seminar

Alternative Strategic Future for iSchools

Friday, February 20, 2015
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm
Michael Buckland

Being a "School of Information" has become popular, and the iSchools' "iCaucus" already has 59 institutional members. In addition to re-branding and opportunism, what are the strategic options for such schools for academic planning and self-characterization? Four radically different alternatives will be identified, compared, and discussed.

This talk is based on a discussion at the UCLA Department of Information on January 15, 2015.
