New FSU Library school Dean a physicist.

mdoneil writes "What is even more interesting is that he is not a librarian. The FSU SIS website has a bit about him here . His CV is available here.


There has been talk of broadening the School of Information Studies to include more than just Library Studies. I have heard that they were considering taking computer science - at least the informational part- into SIS.


Dr. Dennis is a great professor and has done a great deal for online instructional design and was the head of distance and distributed learning so I am sure he will be a benefit to SIS, but not having an MLS seems odd for someone in charge of the library school. Then again the LOC does not have one either.

For those interested the other candidate is here"

Fold the tents

The Dean at the U of I Library school also isn't a librarian. Would this happen in pharmacy or chemistry or education? I'm asking, not complaining.
