Information represents the currency that drives global connections. Librarians and information professionals stand at the gateway of much of the world’s growing knowledge base. They ensure information access amidst evolving metadata standards, and determine how information systems are designed and built (information architecture), how information flows (collection development), through what channels (accessibility), and how people use that information (usability).
Our School understands that in today’s globally connected culture it is vital to both model and teach the importance of information as a phenomenon that bridges gaps and illustrates commonality between disciplines and practices.
