Meet DLIS

The faculty and administration of the Division of Library and Information Science is dedicated and committed to the goals of the Program, the University, and the information professions. Toward these goals, we bring our experience as practitioners, researchers, and instructors.  Our strong service orientation enhances our interactions with both our students and the communities that are dependent upon the skills and professionalism that St. John’s graduates bring to the institutions in which they currently serve and will serve for years to come.
