People & Information: Making Vital Connections
For the past twenty years, our commitment to making vital connections between people and information has never wavered. Today, technology provides us with the opportunity to spread our deep roots to a vast array of information environments. Information is everywhere, or as Dr. Paul Marty is fond of saying, in the 21st century “every place is a library.” FSU School of Information faculty, staff, students, alumni and employers can be found in all kinds of information spaces: conducting assessments of early literacy programs in public libraries, studying the lifecycles of scientists at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, building digital libraries and creating new information resources for K12 classrooms, sponsoring hackathons and coordinating information makerspaces, helping consumers judge the credibility of health information on the Web, and implementing broadband in rural communities.
A founding member of the iSchool movement, the FSU School of Information is internationally recognized as an interdisciplinary, innovative and collaborative force at the vanguard of the information field. Like other iSchools, the FSU School of Information is engaged in critical examination of the relationships among people, information and technology in an era of explosive growth in digital information. The atmosphere at the FSU iSchool is one of excitement and anticipation. There are opportunities everywhere we turn. Everyone needs information, so everyone needs us!
