LIS 590 CI: Community Information Systems (Spring 06) Login | Register
Inquiry Units
Credit Hours: 2 or 4 graduate hours
Description: Introduces community information systems, with an emphasis on community networks. Provides an opportunity to develop knowledge about community information and current issues in its creation, transfer and use. In this course, "community information system" is used broadly to designate any set of technologies, services, and content whose purpose is to supply information, primarily of a local nature, to members of a given geographic community. In Spring 2006, we will focus on how libraries contribute to community building and foster social change, and the role of librarians in helping community organizations realize their goals. We will gain first-hand experience in this arena by creating library collections and services in small non-profit community organizations.
