Directory of Educational Programs in Information Science 1971-1972.
Wilkie, Lorna C., Ed.
For the purposes of this Directory, information science includes the following subjects: library and information systems, library automation and networks, systems analysis, management information systems, information needs and uses, abstracting and indexing, advanced classification theory, non-traditional techniques of organizing knowledge, management of technical information centers, reprography, computational linguistics, man-machine interaction, and information theory. The Directory includes an introduction, a table of contents, a compilation of entries arranged by school and department or program, and four indexes. Separate entries are made for each department or program even though some of them are at the same university. The "Index of Educational Institutions by State and Province" is an alphabetical list of the states in the United States and provinces in Canada. The other three indexes are: "Index of Degrees Offered,""Index of Information Science Courses Offered," and "Index of Faculty Members Interested in Information Science." This first edition of the Directory describes only those graduate programs with primary emphasis on information science rather than on its two major applications, namely computer science and library science.
