A Message from Dean Eileen Abels
I am pleased to greet you as the new dean of the Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS). Together we will build upon GSLIS's hundred year-old traditions, maintaining and advancing the School's strong national stature, its top 10 U.S. News ranking, and its impact on the community and profession. GSLIS will continue to prepare students for a variety of information-related employment opportunities in the 21st century by aligning education with the professional competencies needed today and in the future.
I am proud that Simmons GSLIS alumni are highly sought after and work in a variety of settings, including college and university libraries, Fortune 500 enterprises, cultural heritage institutions, public libraries, start-ups, and information organizations, and are leaders in professional organizations.
All of us at GSLIS invite you to join us as we empower libraries, archives, and cultural heritage institutions in various communities around the world. I hope to meet as many of you as possible in the coming months. We are definitely a School on the move, so please stay informed by connecting with us on Facebook, Twitter @simmonsgslis, and by visiting our newly redesigned website.
