Directory of Educational Programs in Information Science. Supplement, 1972-1973.
Burgard, Andrea, Ed.
This Supplement lists 97 graduate programs in the U.S. and Canada that include education in information science for the academic year 1972-1973. It contains entries for programs in the first edition of the Directory, covering the 1971-72 academic year (ED 056 728), plus six new entries. The full name, address, and telephone number are given for each program. Complete entries are given only for programs which are new to the Directory, while others show only changes. 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. Examples of courses which were always included are linguistics, artificial intelligence, data management systems, information theory, and pattern recognition. Program-language and operating-systems courses are included if they are offered in library schools but not if they are in a computer science department. Courses in numerical analysis, theory of computation, data structures, and programming languages are not included. (Author/SJ)
