While working on (LI Meho and KM Spurgin, "Ranking the Research 
Productivity of LIS Faculty and Schools: An Evaluation of Data Sources 
and Research Methods," JASIST, 56, 1314-1331), Kristina and I needed to 
compile a list of all LIS faculty members at ALA-accredited LIS 
programs. At the time (2003), similar directories were available in 
print, but none were complete or up-to-date to draw representative or 
accurate samples.

Recently, I had to update the directory for another project I am 
currently working on. Knowing that such a directory could be of use 
to/by doctoral students, faculty members, and administrators, I thought 
I would share it with all of you hoping that you'll find it beneficial 
for your research.

The directory is available at 
(http://www.slis.indiana.edu/faculty/meho/LIS-Directory/) and currently 
includes the names, status, affiliations, and (where available) the 
e-mail and web addresses of all Assistant Professors, Associate 
Professors, Professors, and Professors Emeritus. The directory is 
arranged alphabetically by last name and includes lists of faculty 
members by individual schools (and the source of each list). If you see 
any names missing or if you see any errors, please let me know at: 
meho at indiana.edu.

I am hoping that in the future, this directory will include the 
teaching and research interests of all faculty members and that it will 
become a searchable directory. I am also hoping that each 
faculty/school will spend a few minutes per year to update his/her/its 
information. A reminder will be sent on ASIS-L and JESSE once a 
semester for this purpose.

All information in this directory was taken from the websites of the 57 
ALA-accredited LIS programs.
