Recent rankings have reaffirmed the school’s steadily emerging status as a national leader in teaching and research. Last April, the U.S. News & World Report ranking of library and information sciences (LIS) programs placed SIS as the 16th best program in North America.
In September, SIS ranked No. 1 in the nation for per capita journal articles published by its faculty, according to a study by researchers from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
Professor Carol Tenopir is ranked as the most research productive library and information science faculty member in the United States.
The study, entitled “Scholarly Productivity of U.S. LIS Faculty,” was published in the Autumn 2006 edition of Library and Information Science Research.
