A Message from Dean Eileen Abels

Dear friends,

We have been very busy at GSLIS. Over the past two months, I have held webinars with alumni to talk about the reorganization that occurred in July. Because we now have the bachelor's degree in Computer Science as well as the M.A. and M.F.A. in Children's Literature, in addition to the M.S. in Library and Information Science, we need to think about a new name for the School. The alumni who participated in the webinars were very engaged and offered some great insights. We will keep you posted about progress with the name change. Please feel free to contact me with any thoughts you have.

I am pleased to announce our new blog entitle "Unbound." The blog focuses on the future of libraries. We hope that you will read the blog and join the conversation. You can find the blog here

GSLIS After Dark, our annual alumni event, is quickly approaching. I hope to see you on April 4th when we will recognize Toby Pearlstein '77LS, '86LSD, as our alumni achievement award winner.

Dean Eileen AbelsSincerely,

Dean Eileen Abels
